Introduction

Chapter One


The current tourism textbook market is saturated with books that conform to an outdated mode… this book presents a fresh look at tourism topics exploring emerging markets, new niches, and alternative development models from using a local-to-global framework. As such the book will more accurately portray the content and context of global tourism. The project has great potential to be considered the first 21st century tourism textbook

For the growing number of students and researchers engaging with tourism, this book provides an excellent entry point to the major concepts which help frame our understanding of this global and multi-layered phenomenon. This compact book provides a valuable service in introducing the diversity of concepts we need in tourism studies

The text essentially x-rayed basic issues in understanding tourism. Well articulated text, I highly recommend this for undergraduate tourism students.

Suitable support material for learners giving a concise reference guide to key topics

Wide range of topics covered and the short introductory chapters provide the background basics. The economics chapter could have more up to date statistics and the reprint could have taken the opportunity for an update on newer publications for the further reading and recommended books section in each chapter. However, an easy to use book which students will use for initial background into the different topics.

Clear and straight to the point book that I have enjoyed using over the first term when it was used.
Unit where book is used is an introductory unit for the degree and is thus giving many students a foundation understanding of the topic.
The topics are short and informative - thus easy to build a lecture around a set of them each.
The students (who do not have English as their mother-tongue) have found the book understandable a pleasantly free of jargon.
