AbstractMathews and Richter - amongst many - have condemned the paucity of political analyses in Tourism Studies, while Hall and Meethan have likewise bemoaned the field's related privileging of prescriptivist studies of policy making at the expense of longitudinal, descriptivist interpretations. Responding to such calls, this paper (on the under-suspected ideological power and authority of tourism) critiques the contribution to the understanding of real-world governmental action of the historian McKay as generated in his investigation of matters of cultural representation and cultural formation in Canada.
