FORTUNATO, Norberto. The Landscape and its Representations as a Source of Tourist Revenues: Core Values of the Concept "National Park. Estud. perspect. tur. [online]. 2005, vol.14, n.4, pp.314-348. ISSN 1851-1732.

This paper focuses on an analysis of the core values of the "national park" concept during the early years of the national park movement and its later institutionalization in the context of national government policy efforts in the USA as well as the growing awareness of the specifically Argentine dimension of this topic. In describing the historical development of the ideas, public policies and practices associated with the concept of "national parks" this paper's main objective is to identify the cluster of values associated originally with these undertakings, preparatory to a discussion of the present and future meaning of the term "national parks".
