9780415399555: Environment and Tourism (Routledge Introductions to Environment: Environment and Society Texts)

This second edition of Environment and Tourism reflects changes in the relationship between tourism, society and the natural environment in the first decade of the new century. Alongside the updating of all statistics, environmental policy initiatives, examples and case studies new material has been added. This includes two new chapters: one on climate change and natural disasters and the other on the relationship between tourism and poverty. These themes have direct relevance, not only to tourism, but are reflective of the wider relationship between nature and society, a thesis that contextualizes this book. Tourism is also analyzed as an interconnected system, linking the environments of where tourists come from, with the ones they go to.

Taking a holistic view of the tourism system and how it interacts with the natural environment, this volume illustrates the positive and negative effects of this relationship, and importantly how tourism can be planned and managed to encourage natural resource conservation and aid human development. It is an invaluable tool for all those studying human geography, tourism and environment studies.

Review:

'Overall the book is commended to readers as being an essential text in the area of tourism and environment and no doubt in due course it will become a classic in the field.' - International Journal of Tourism Research

'Andrew Holden writes in an accessible and straightforward style without patronising the reader, and this introductory-level book is packed with case-study materials, examples and discussions of how issues play out ... all in all, this is a good starter for entry-level students.' - Mike Crang, Times Higher Education Supplement
