Examining different levels of scale - from local to global - Tourism and Tourism Spaces is informed by the discussion of three key processes:
- production and consumption of tourist spaces
- consumption and commodification of tourist experiences
- construction and reconstruction of tourist spaces
Each chapter engages with different theoretical perspectives; is illustrated with comparative examples and case studies; uses tables, boxes and figures throughout; and concludes with a summary.
An integrated and systematic review of a range of theoretical positions - that integrates economic and cultural - Tourism and Tourism Spaces will be a key resource for students of geography, sociology, management studies, hospitality studies, and leisure studies.
