This book is a critical, authoritative review of tourism management, written by leading international thinkers and academics in the field. Arranged over two volumes, the chapters are framed as critical synoptic pieces covering key developments, current issues and debates, and emerging trends and future considerations for the field. The two volumes focus in turn on the theories, concepts and disciplines that underpin tourism management in volume one, followed by examinations of how those ideas and concepts have been applied in the second volume. Chapters are structured around twelve key themes: Researching Tourism, Social Analysis, Economic Analysis, Technological Analysis, Environmental Analysis, Political Analysis, Approaching Tourism, Destination Applications, Marketing Applications, Tourism Product Markets, Technological Applications, and Environmental Applications.
