About the Author:

The editors have all worked together in the former Leisure and Tourism Management Department of the Scottish Agricultural College (SAC) which produced the ‘Auchincruive Declaration' on tourism and rural sustainability in 1998, and which this book helps to perpetuate. They have common interests in sustainable rural development, notably Morag Mitchell in economic evaluation, Irene Kirkpatrick in equine recreation development, and Derek Hall in retirement recreation in the countryside. Dr Mitchell is now Rural Economist with SAC Aberdeen, Ms Kirkpatrick had administrative roles with SAC Auchincruive, and Professor Hall is Visiting Professor with Häme Polytechnic, Finland and a partner of Seabank Enterprises, Scotland.

Review:

This book provides constructive knowledge on the development and diversity of rural tourism. It will contribute to a much-needed reinvigoration of the rural tourism debate.

(Anders S)

This is a book to savour and one that should make readers think. Well chosen contributors from around the world present a rich mix of theory and practice.

(Bernard Lane, co-editor: Journal of Sustainable Tourism)
