The objective of this paper is to develop a conceptual framework for viewing the social psychology of international tourism. The concern will be with reviewing selective works of sociologists and extending some of the themes growing out of this research. Special emphasis will be placed on the book by Dean MacCannell (8) entitled Tourist: A New Theory of the Leisure Class and Eric Cohen's (2) typology of international tourist. The symbolic meaning of tourism is placed within the context of psychological modernity.
