Product Description

Review

From previous editions:

‘This book should be compulsory reading for all those engaged in tourism research.’ – Erlet Cater, In Focus, Tourism Concern

‘…one of the most significant books produced on tourism in the past few years.’ Geoffrey Wall, Annals of Tourism Research

 ‘A valuable and overdue contribution to a multi-disciplinary area. This book meets the challenge to say something clear and interesting in a quicksand of ambiguities.’ – Professor John Lea, University of Sydney

‘Informative, stimulating, and provocative, the book deserves to be read by a wide audience … It is absolutely essential reading for all those serious scholars of tourism studies wishing to appreciate "the bigger picture".’ – Brian Wheeller, Annals of Tourism Research

‘…the book is quite simply one of the most important theoretical contributions to the growing subdiscipline of tourism geography and is likely to be a mainstay for many years to come.’ – Keith Debbage, Annals of the Association of American Geographers

‘...a far-reaching, timely and quite penetrating critique of some of the forms of tourism that have emerged as a direct response to the clarion call for sustainable tourism development’ – Michael Parnwell, Journal of Development Studies

I purchased this book on my kindle as it was a core text for my masters degree in Responsible Tourism Management. It was a very easy read, yet really informative and has great case studies. The authors managed to keep the subject alive and had raised very thought provoking issues. I highly recommend this to anyone studying sustainable development/tourism related fields.

Good delivery. Difficult book to understand on first reading, however, the book has some great perspectives and makes a lot of sense when you finally gain insight into the writers motives.
