Abstract

The author proposes that in the Caribbean in general, and Barbados in particular, the development of a tourism sector in the present period does not constitute a new nor original phenomenon. Rather the tourism sector in Barbados is the inevitable outcome of a certain attitude a predisposition to "welcome" which always had an important social and political function. Barbados is therefore seen as a "welcoming society" in which, although it would seem that the inhabitants were naturally inclined towards abundant hospitality, the welcome was a product of the social superstructure and subsequently enhanced the reproduction of the social, economic, and political rigidities for Barbadian society. (MPM).
