Paradise laborers: hotel work in the global economy

Research output: Contribution to journalBook/Film/Article review

Abstract

Adler and Adler's genuine skill as storytellers really elevates this book to an engaging and compelling read, bringing to life this fascinating milieu. Too often research in the hospitality sector has tended to rely on the managerial voice alone and this book clearly avoids such a trap. Indeed, it takes its place alongside several other crucial works emanating from the United States, where ethnographic study has allowed us a real insight into the working lives of those employed in the hospitality sector.
