This book is important - it reminds us that tourism activity does not occur in a vacuum, but rather is shaped by forces linked to globalisation, sustainability, information and telecommunications technology. With its accessible and engaging writing style, it is a must for undergraduate students in their early days of studying tourism management and offers a very welcome addition to the tourism literature

Tourism Management: An Introduction provides a refreshing and accessible perspective on key aspects of tourism for those new to the subject. This is something of an achievement as there are some very good books on the library shelves already
Professor of Tourism and Events Policy, Leeds Metropolitan University
Tourism is an exciting and dynamic sector which affects so many lives in many different ways and in this foundation text the authors bring that to life for students who are starting their tourism studies and require a succinct and comprehensive introduction. Students will find the self-test questions and recommended reading lists particularly valuable

This is a hugely readable, accessible and clearly structured introduction to the broad, diverse and complex dimensions of tourism. It is perfect for first and second year undergraduates as the authors clearly explain the issues that affect the success of tourism in destinations, and the management of tourism′s impacts on destination economies, environments and communities. Students will like the inclusion of snapshots and case studies to demonstrate how theory applies in practice and the definitions of specialist terminology
