Product Description


This is a well-structured revision of an innovative text on a topic of increasing interest and relevance in tourism studies. The authors are to be commended for not only updating their first edition but also for adding some new and highly relevant examples. This is an indispensable text for those interested in the growing field of sports tourism. --Richard Butler, Emeritus Professor, University of Strathclyde, UK

The second edition of Sport Tourism Development is much more than an update of Hinch and Higham s seminal text. Recent advances in sport tourism research and theory have been fully captured in this new edition, which synthesized and organizes the field in useful ways. The book constructively explores the current state of knowledge, and clearly articulates the implications for theory and practice. --Laurence Chalip, University of Texas at Austin, USA

Drs. Hinch and Higham have once again delivered an up-to-date, accessibly written overview of the relationship between sport, tourism, and development. The book addresses the critical issues and opportunities in the industry and crosses over different academic disciplines, in a way that is accessible to academics, students, and practitioners alike. --Dan Mason, University of Alberta, Canada --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

About the Author

Professor Tom Hinch is the Associate Dean, Community and International Engagement in the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation at the University of Alberta in Canada. Tom has made major contributions to the study of sport tourism related to place, globalization and identity. He is particularly interested in the place-specific cultural aspects of sport as potential mechanisms by which visitors can connect to places meaningfully. Professor James Higham is Head of the Department of Tourism at the University of Otago in New Zealand. He has made major contributions to deepening the understanding of sports markets, destination management, seasonality and concepts of mobility. His interests coalesce around the opportunities and issues that sports offer for destination development. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
