About the Author

Cameron Jean Walker is Research Associate in the Department of Anthropology at California State University, Fullerton. She is Vice President for Societies for the Archaeological Institute of America.


"Walker's book will be of interest not only to Mayanists, but also to scholars with interests in tourism. The book is well written and should engage and be accessible to students, both because of the subject matter--spring breakers may never view Cancun in the same way--and the author's style and concise presentation. In sum, Walker's thoughtful meditation will help readers reflect on the meanings of tourism, both positive and negative, and hopefully will inspire more careful and responsible action in the future"--American Enthnologist


"As a proper archaeologist, she accomplishes a successful excavation of the complexity of the Maya Riviera, cleaning off the politics, histories, individuals, and social symbolism of archaeological meaning and manufacture. Though there are other merits, this alone marks this as an important contribution by an archaeologist who conceptualizes deeply, through the layers of social significance, political economy, and cultural consumption of archaeology."--Journal of Folklore Research
