3.0 out of 5 stars Almost there, but not quite! 2 May 2012
By B395 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Cultural Tourism prove to be really interesting reading material. This book is nice to carry around, in that it is not very large. The author is almost there, in writing a textbook that people can actually enjoy reading. For the most part, the author is concise, but in some areas the book is just too wordy. For a topic such as cultural tourism, I think this textbook would be much better if it was in color and included more photos. Much of the content would be comprehended better with images to compliment the writings.

All and all it is one of the better textbooks I have read, but not quite there.
3.0 out of 5 stars Fine as a textbook... 27 May 2013
By BookBabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a required text for a Cultural Heritage Tourism class. It serves its purpose as a textbook but is not something I would choose to read. It is very dry, and is totally in black and white. Readers would have to be interested in the field to find it interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book! 22 Feb. 2009
By Branislav Rabotic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the best titles on cultural tourism: well structured, concise, lucid and documented with relevant examples. Nothing is too much here. The authors are focused on the main issues of the subject, which is dissected in a precise and coherent way. As a textbook it would gain a great popularity among students!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cultural Tourism - Building a Partnership 3 Nov. 2002
By Graham Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Cultural Tourism - The Partnership Between Tourism and Cultural Heritage Management" presents a strong and well argued case for building a vital and productive partnership between two potentially competing interest groups.
The book is an excellent and thorough disertation and expansion on the principles and guidelines contained in the "ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Charter". ICOMOS is the international organisation that brings together all those who work in the field of historic building and site conservation. The protection and conservation of their historic buildings, sites and places is an important part of the cultural identity of every community. Presentation of the significant characteristics of these places to the public is essential if there is to be widespread support for their protection and conservation. The tourism industry plays an important part in this presentation process.
Hilary and Bob have explored many of the ideas contained in the Charter, provided case studies and taken the work into new areas. As a result, I have no doubt that it will become one of the seminal texts related to the work of the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Committee, as it encourages productive linkages between toruism and cultural heritage management internationally.

Hisashi Sugaya, former Chairman of the Committee notes that "the book identifies those factors that must be considered when evaluating the tourism potential of cultural or heritage assets, and presents a model for evaluating how to integrate tourism with cultural heritage management". Dr Walter Jamieson, a heritage tourism consultant working in South East Asia, notes that "the book is a very useful contribution to our understanding of maintaining our heritage within the context of tourism development".
