Pressestimmen"Where Asia Smiles is a most impressive book and certainly the best I have ever read on tourism because it finds the right mix of precise description, empathic documentation, and judicious theoretical analysis."-Jean Paul Dumont, George Mason University "A timely and delightful new book... Ness thoughtfully explores the social, cultural, and economic implications of the localization of global tourism in Davao... Where Asia Smiles: an Ethnography of Philippine Tourism will appeal to a wide range of audiences. It offers a richly textured and informative account of the development of Philippine tourism at the microscopic level. It is a book for all those interested in learning more about the local ramifications of global tourism."-Journal of Asian Studies "Anyone who has been to Manila, Bali, or Bangkok is aware of the plight of the locals who despise and yet want the presence of tourists... Ness focuses on the Philippines ... to examine the delicate balance between preserving one's way of life while being open to the increasing demands of tourism."-Choice
