Review:

In The Origins of Hospitality and Tourism, Kevin O'Gorman provides a unique and rich analysis. His historical/philosophical approach invites the reader to share in a deep understanding of the terms by a thorough engagement with textual evidence from and about Classical Antiquity. A fascinating read. Professor John Tribe, University of Surrey, UK and Editor of Annals of Tourism Research All those interested in hospitality and tourism will benefit great by reading this book, not only by understanding more clearly from whence the key elements of hospitality came, but how much the principles of modern hospitality are based on those of the past. The thorough and careful research in this book ensures that it will become a key reference for teachers and researchers in hospitality, and also for all who are interested in the origins of both hospitality and tourism. Professor Richard W Butler, Visiting Professor, Griffith University, Queensland This is perhaps the first book really looking in-depth into the origins of hospitality and tourism. It provides many examples and rich descriptions of hospitality from different civilizations. Hospitality students, educators, practicing managers in the industry should read this book to better understand the true origins of hospitality and tourism. Dr. Fevzi Okumus, University of Central Florida, Editor of International Contemporary Hospitality Management This book makes a major contribution to knowledge in the field and has perfect timing as a result of the emerging school of `hospitality studies'. Stephanie Jameson, Principal Lecturer, Leeds Metropolitan University The arrival of this book represents the end of a long wait for a reliable and scholarly history of the hospitality and tourism industries... Anatolia 22 (2011) The academic rigour of this work serves to restore hospitality to its honorable place as a social, experiential activity and reminds us that rather than a purely commercial pursuit hospitality is a phenomenon of cultural expressionism. Associate Professor Barry O'Mahony, Victoria University, Australia ...this text should be a required reading for any PhD in the field. Beyond graduate students, this text should be a must-read for industry managers. The text is well written, beautifully researched, and makes a contribution as being the first book that examines the origins of hospitality and tourism. Annals of Tourism Research, Vol. 38, No. 4, 2011 ...this text should be a required reading for any PhD in the field. Beyond graduate students, this text should be a must-read for industry managers. The text is well written, beautifully researched, and makes a contribution as being the first book that examines the origins of hospitality and tourism. * Annals of Tourism Research, Vol. 38, No. 4, 2011 *
