[Extract] As so clearly highlighted by Moseardo (Chapter]. this volume). tourism frequently fails to live up to the unrealistically high expectations that are placed upon it. Furthermore. while tourism has the potential to bring great benefits. it also imposes costs on host communities. and since the costs and benefits associated with tourism are not distributed evenly. inevitable conflicts arise. It comes as no surprise to find that Virtually all of' the case studies considered by Moscardo (Chapter 1. this volume) had groups that supported tourism developments and groups that opposed them.
