Editorial Reviews

This new edition is particularly valuable for its erudite and succinct discussion of theoretical developments in the study of tourism and leisure. The empirical examples are wide ranging and the book will be a key text for students from a wide range of disciplines who wish to understand the many social and environmental challenges arising from contemporary tourism and leisure activity. Professor Andrew Church, University of Brighton. "The many examples are wide ranging and hence it should provide a key text for students from a wide range of disciplines who wish to understand the many social challenges arising from contemporary tourism and leisure activity. [...] The text offers a vital contribution of the problems and issues facing modern tourism." International Journal of Environmental Studies
