The Red Riviera: Gender, Tourism, and Postsocialism on the Black Sea

Reviews

"[A]n engaging and approachable ethnography of post-socialist Bulgaria. . . . Admittedly, chapter 3 . . . was my favorite for its sheer freshness of information and perspective. . . . Under its serious condsideration of economic transition and women's lives, The Red Riviera is also the raciest ethnography of Eastern Europe yet." 

Jennifer Cash, Soyuz: The Research Network for Postcolonial Studies
