DACHARY, Alfredo César  and  ARNAIZ BURNE, Stella Maris. The Study of Tourism: A Paradigm under Construction?. Estud. perspect. tur. [online]. 2006, vol.15, n.2, pp.179-192. ISSN 1851-1732.

This article reviews the main studies that have analyzed tourism since the beginning of the XX century until present time. The sustainability scope gives Sociology a new important role which goes beyond the study of the impacts created by tourism. Sociology's main challenge during the XXI century, as it is for other Social Sciences, is to face the actual crisis of paradigms due to the fall of socialism as an alternative model of the actual hegemonic capitalist world.

Keywords : Sociology of tourism; Sustainability; Holistic vision.
