"Professor Kolb has written a comprehensive, eminently readable, and-perhaps most importantly-highly applicable guide to effective tourism marketing. This book appears at a propitious time, as cities around the US are rediscovering and building upon their heritages and as central cities are rebounding from their post-war declines. Kolb's global examples and helpful prompts encourage strategic thinking and effective positioning in the increasingly competitive quest for tourist spending. This volume will be used in academic programs, but it belongs on professional bookshelves as well."
-Charles M. Gray, Professor of Economics, University of St. Thomas, and President, Association of Cultural Economics International
"This is one of the first books to explore in a comprehensive manner how cities can develop a tourism sector. It uniquely combines theory and practice; is clearly written, pertinent and perceptive; and its extensive use of relevant examples makes it interesting and useful for students as well as practioners.
At a time when cultural tourism is acknowledged as vital to local economies, Kolb's new book is going to be necessary reading for all of those concerned with promoting cities, towns and the arts."
-- Professor Sara Selwood, Head of Department of Cultural Policy and Management, School of Arts, City University, Northampton Square, London
