So, for example, the business traveller may visit friends, take in a show or tour a museum, alongside the business meetings that provide the primary motive for the trip. One of the earliest and most influential attempts to classify tourists was proposed by Cohen (1972). e. e. very loosely attached – or independent of the tourist establishment). The two institutional categories are described by Cohen as organised mass tourists and individual mass tourists, whilst the non-institutional categories embrace people that Cohen labels as explorers and drifters.
Tourism and tourist spaces, it is argued, are directly structured by the patterns of scapes and flows and as one of the most significant areas of modern mobility, tourism is deeply implicated in a key area of change. Globalisation An important aspect of Urry’s concept of mobility is that the scapes and flows transcend (and in many situations dissolve) national boundaries. Mobility therefore connects directly to processes of globalisation which may be seen as one of the primary consequences of the time–space compressions that are associated with enhanced and accelerated mobilities (Harvey, 1989).
Second, arising from these new cultural perspectives, approaches to understanding tourism have become more relational in character. Thus, traditional binary readings of tourism’s impacts and effects have been – and are being – replaced by more nuanced interpretations that recognise the negotiated and contingent nature of how tourism relates to the places, peoples, societies and cultures that are toured. For example, until quite recently, social science perspectives (including human geography) tended to present the relationship between tourists and the people they visited in terms of ‘hosts and guests’ (Smith, 1977) or – in economic terms – producers and consumers.
