Book Description 
  
In this biting, very funny satire Parr looks at tourism worldwide, exposing an increasingly homogeneous 'global culture' where in the search for different cultures those same cultures are destroyed. Parr's larger-than-life troupe of tourists are ultimately bemused victims of consumerism, locked into the late twentieth century's insatiable craving for spectacle. These Small World citizens become symbols of the freedoms of Western prosperity; declaring their power and their right to travel, to choose and, above all, to consume.
