In the final chapter, Stephen Brown recognises that while place branding may have peaked, we now see more of a focus on destination demarketing. This book is therefore very timely. Since global tourism was devastated in 2020 and places seek to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, a more considered research agenda as outlined in this book may lead to places being better managed with a focus more on sufficiency than growth, so we do not face a need for destination demarketing again.’ – Heather Skinner, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK 2021 352 pp Hardback 978 1 83910 284 4 £105.00 / $155.00 September 2022 Paperback 978 1 0353 0679 4 £30.95 / $45.00 eBook • Elgaronline Elgar Research Agendas NEW IN PAPERBACK Marketing Countries, Places, and Place-associated Brands Identity and Image Edited by Nicolas Papadopoulos, Carleton University, Ottawa and Mark Cleveland, University of Western Ontario, London, Canada ‘In a field not noted for its sense of direction or purpose, Papadopoulos and Cleveland have achieved that rare goal: a properly curated collection. They have done this with intelligence and panache, so this book should move the field forward, and is also a pleasure to read.
