While qualitative approaches are beginning to be more commonly used and accepted in tourism, discussions of research methods have rarely moved beyond practical considerations. To date there has been limited attention given to the philosophical and theoretical underpinnings that influence the research process. This book links theory with research practice to offer a more holistic account of how qualitative research can be used in tourism.
The book provides a range of case studies written by leading scholars from the UK, Greece, Scandinavia, America, Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia. The book makes it clear, in an accessible style, the ways in which these pieces of research have been informed by the authors' epistemological, ontological, and methodological standpoint.
