June 19, 2013

Elizabeth Becker spoke about her book, Overbooked: The Exploding Business of Travel and Tourism, at Politics & Prose on Friday, June 19, 2013.

From Costa Rican ecotourism to Dubai’s desert shopping malls to African safaris, the travel industry isn’t just thriving—it’s changing the world. Reporting from jungles, cities, and ancient ruins, Becker, award-winning former New York Times foreign correspondent, looks closely at the largest global business and charts its decidedly mixed impact on economies, traditions, and natural environments.
