  1. Handbook of Globalisation and Tourism

    Handbook of Globalisation and Tourism

    Edited by Dallen J. Timothy
    Globalization entails the world becoming a smaller place through political, socio-cultural and economic processes. These processes have salient implications for tourism, and tourism itself is one of the driving forces behind globalization. This book is a collection of conceptual treatises by international scholars about the dynamics and reach of globalization and its relationships with tourism. It anatomizes and deconstructs the global forces, processes and challenges that face the world of tourism. It is international in scope, encyclopedic in its conceptual depth, empirically evocative, and contemporary in its coverage. Learn More

  2. Local Resources, Territorial Development and Well-being

    Local Resources, Territorial Development and Well-being

    Edited by Jean-Christophe Dissart, Natacha Seigneuret
    Using empirical evidence, this book argues for a more comprehensive view of the diversity of local resources and well-being from a territorial perspective. The first part of the book addresses the contrasting nature of local resources: in connection with proximity and governance, the ground, the past, cultural heritage sites, the snow, and energy. Well-being from multiple perspectives is examined in the second part, shedding light on sociabilities vs. income level, accessibility for pedestrians, health via urban design, life course trajectories as indicators of quality of life, and the connection between amenities and social justice.

  5. Advanced Introduction to Sustainable Tourism

    Advanced Introduction to Sustainable Tourism

    David Weaver
    This critical review of sustainable tourism, from its beginnings in the late 1980s to the present, examines the pressing challenges posed by the effects of global warming and the persistence of deep poverty and social unrest in many regions. David Weaver explores the convergence of mass and ‘alternative’ tourism as a dominant theme. Originally perceived as two incompatible forms of tourism, they are positioned in this book through enlightened mass tourism as unified components of a single global ‘tourisystem’ with the power to achieve sustainable tourism.
