Note Chapter 1. Modern Maritime Practices In The Tropics -- Chapter 2. Tropical Coastal Maritime Cities -- Chapter 3. Tourism Development Policies In The Brazilian Northeast -- Chapter 4 -- Tropism, The Biggest Myth Of Tourism In The Tropics -- Chapter 5. Final Considerations
This book studies the transformation of modern maritimity practices in coastal areas (such as swimming, navigation and tourism) and their implications to the development of Brazilian coastal cities, with an emphasis on the Northeast part of the country. It is a reflection on coastal geography in the tropics and the contemporary valorization of coastal cities from a socioeconomic, technological and symbolical point of view. The book highlights local fluxes on a regional and local scale, showing the incorporation of beach zones to spaces which were previously associated with so called traditional coastal practices (fishing activities and as harboring points) This book is dedicated to geography researchers and students
