Sports tourism22 December, 2007
For the thirtieth anniversary edition of Tourism Recreation Research I was invited to contribute an article on the impact of cross-border tourism from the perspective of peace and reconciliation generated by the opening of the India-Pakistan border for the first home Test match in fifty years.
As I felt that this was an article probably no-one could do justice to on their own, I worked with colleagues at Coventry University – Andrew Rigby (professor of Peace and Reconciliation), Ian Talbot (professor of South Asian Studies and cricket fan) and Shinder Thandi (expert on Punjabi Studies and cricket fan).
See here for the abstract.
More recently I wrote a book chapter which was a case study of the Barmy Army during the Cricket World Cup in the West Indies.
