Envisioning Eden is one of those books one may read with a delightful satisfaction. Concerning author´s experience as ethnographer in Indonesia, it focuses on the circulation of identities in an ever-mobile and globalized world. If the nature of tourism consists in the circulation of subjects, bodies and identities new boundaries should be renegotiated. The globalization, Salazar adds, joined to marketer discourse that the globe has no margins, but indeed a closer look reveals the contrary. The local voices erect by means of conflict. The world not only evidences a very complex mixture but also have specific boundaries and local agents. Certainly these limits are reminded by the material asymmetries produced by tourism and mass-consumption. What does the tourism literature need a book of this caliber?
