Review:

'An interesting piece of work, a comprehensive treatise which would be an imminently useful introductory text and reference for undergraduate studies in the Geography-Tourism-Recreation domain, a dynamic study field that is here to stay - for a long time!' - Jan O.J. Lungren, Geografiska Annaler 81 B

'This book should be of great use for students of the cultural impacts of tourism, and is a fascinating study of an island community in its own right.' - Tourism Recreation Research
