  • Anita Pleumarom. "Eco-tourism or Eco-terrorism?" Sustainable Tourism. 1995 - "Romantic devastation Eco-tourism's claim that it preserves and enhances local cultures is highly insincere. Ethnic groups are viewed as a major asset in attracting visitors; an `exotic' backdrop to natural scenery and wildlife. The simultaneous romanticism and devastation of indigenous cultures is one of eco- tourism's ironies."
