Twelve original songs and twelve chapters to explore the current challenges in managing (tourism) places. The emotional power of music propels a critical investigation into contemporary seaside, urban and rural destinations, and their sometimes ambiguous sustainable development. This journey frames tourism as a context where we can better appreciate the contradictions of capitalism or overlook them, distracted by the charming playfulness of travel consumption.
