"A Darth Vader grotesque on a church, a giant chair, the longest escalator in the western hemisphere, a fence forged from War of 1812 muskets, a yet uncracked cryptographic sculpture, the world's oldest continuously operating airport, the only Civil War battleground within the District border, go "behind the curtain" to see the work of an art conservator, have a "close encounter" with one of cinema's most beloved spaceships ... Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, Washington DC is a reserve of well-concealed treasures only revealed to those who know how to wander off the beaten track, whether residents or visitors. An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew the city well, or who would like to discover the hidden face of the city"--Back cover.

Haunted Heritage is a fascinating scholarly examination of the dynamics of ghost or paranormal tourism. Michele Hanks explores how this phenomenon allows for the re-articulation and re-configuring of ideas of heritage, epistemic authority, nation, and belonging. Drawing on long-term ethnographic fieldwork, Hanks delves into the anthropological, sociological, political, historical, and cultural factors that drive this burgeoning business. Using York, England, said to be “the most haunted city in the world,” as the base for her research, Hanks focuses on three forms of ghost tourism: ghost walks, commercial ghost hunts, and non-profit ghost hunts and paranormal investigations, comparing the experience of York with other sites of ghost tourism globally. This book will appeal to scholars interested in tourism, heritage, the paranormal, visual cultural, British studies, or popular religion.
