 Over the last three decades it seems that everybody has travelled to just about everywhere, from Peru to Sri Lanka. But  do travellers know that the southern hills of Everest have been  re-christened "garbage trail" due to the disgraceful  behaviour of the climbers? Or, to choose a much more odious  example, that most of the new tourist facilities in Myanmar were  built using slave labour? And what about the hotels in Goa,  whose consumption of water has severely reduced the supply  available to locals?
 Clearly, there's something rotten in the state of global tourism.
 In this book Sustainable Tourism Studies trailblazer Duccio Canestrini not only denounces those countries that seem "to  delegate to tour operators environmental policies, social  relationships and public safety", but questions the privileged Westerner's facile and ultimately exploitative attitude towards travelling. This book includes an informative  country by country rundown of exploitative practices, as well as  a useful list of associations, organisations and groups who work  in the field of sustainable tourism.
