9780415833998: The Geography of Tourism and Recreation: Environment, Place and Space

This fourth edition of The Geography of Tourism and Recreation provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the interrelationship between tourism, leisure and recreation from geographical and social science perspectives. It still remains the only book to systematically compare and contrast in a spatial context, tourism and recreation in relation to leisure time, offering insight into the demand, supply, planning, destination management and impacts of tourism and recreation.
Whilst retaining its accessible style and approach this edition has been significantly updated to reflect recent developments and new concepts from geography which are beginning to permeate the tourism and recreational field. New features include:

  • Content on the most recent developments, climate change, sustainability, mobilities and crisis management in time and space as well as trends such as low cost airlines and the control of land transport by transnational operators in the EU such as Arriva.
  • More attention to management issues such as innovation and the spatial consequences for tourism and leisure development.
  • New case studies and examples to showcase real life issues, from both developed and developing countries, especially the US, China and South Africa.
  • Completely revised and redeveloped to accommodate new, user- friendly features: case studies, insights, summary points and learning objectives.

Written by leading academics, this is essential reading for all tourism, geography, leisure and recreation students.

Review:

"They just keep getting better and better. This new edition of The Geography of Tourism and Recreation is an outstanding example of contemporary and cutting-edge thinking in the dynamic subfield of tourism geographies. It exemplifies a heterogeneous approach to understanding the spatial implications of tourism, the industry and its functions in diverse settings and ecosystems, and its impacts on human and natural environments. For an innovative examination of current trends in tourism, this book is essential reading for anyone who studies, teaches, or practices the business, art and science of tourism." - Dallen J. Timothy, Professor, School of Community Resources and Development, Arizona State University, USA.

"In the often nebulous and many-sided world of tourism geographies, where space and place are simultaneously attraction and constraint, product and site, destination and experience, there are no more knowledgeable, versatile or sure footed guides than C.Michael Hall and Stephen Page.  They have led a generation of students and researchers and in this  fourth edition they continue the intellectual journey into the emerging social, economic and political realities of the 21st century." - G.J.Ashworth, Professor, Department of Planning, Faculty of Spatial Sciences, University of Groningen, Netherlands.
