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.
