MAZON, Tomás; HUETE, Raquel  e  MANTECON, Alejandro. Tourism dependence and host community perceptions: Notes on the social exchange theory. Encontros Científicos [online]. 2009, n.5, pp.25-36. ISSN 1646-2408.

This article examines the opinions of the local population on the south coast of the Spanish province of Alicante regarding the development of tourism in recent years, analysing their perception of the benefits of tourism using the social exchange theory. This study is presented in two stages. The qualitative stage, which is based on in-depth interviews and focus groups, acts as a guide for the second stage, which consists of a survey conducted with the resident Spanish population. It was found that people linked to the tourist sector through their work view tourism as the driving force behind the economic and social development of their towns, although they are more critical than others of the model that has been established. They defend the development process that has taken place, but feel that overcrowding brings their towns to a standstill and needs to be resolved.
