Synopsis:

Exploring the Hospitality Industry, 2e offers broad coverage of the hospitality industry in an easy-to-read, conversational style. Written by best-selling author John Walker, this book is less theoretical and more industry-relevant than most–emphasizing the people, companies, and positions that make up the hospitality industry today. Moving beyond just restaurants and hotels, it includes new growth areas such as event management, meeting planning, cruising, theme parks, attractions and entertainment. With a new focus on sustainability, this edition features case studies, practitioners and corporations that engage and involve readers as they explore the trends in this ever-growing field.    

About the Author: "Dr. John R. Walker" is professor and director of the Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management Program at the Alliant International University in San Diego, California. John's fifteen years of industry experience includes management training at the Savoy Hotel London. This was followed by terms as food and beverage manager, assistant rooms division manager, catering manager, and general manager with Grand Metropolitan Hotels, Selsdon Park Hotel, Rank Hotels, Inter-Continental Hotels, and the Coral Reef Resort, Barbados, West Indies.

For the past twenty years he has taught at two- and four-year schools in Canada and the United States. In addition to being a hospitality management consultant and text author, he has been published in "The Cornell Hotel Restaurant Administration Quarterly" and "The Hospitality Educators Journal."

John is an editorial advisory board member for "Progress in Tourism and Hospitality Research," published by John Wiley & Sons. John is a past president of the Pacific Chapter of the Council on Hotel, Restaurant, and Institutional Education (CHRIE). He is a certified hotel administrator and a certified Foodservice Management Professional (FMP).
