‘This is an excellent collection of articles selected not only on the basis of the content but also because it represents the maturing of a key area of development within the wider domain of tourism studies. Destination management is a global issue which all countries, National Tourism Organisations and the tourism sector are now concerned with, and yet no general synthesis of key developments in the literature has been produced. This collection of key articles represents the most significant overview of the field to date, with a comprehensive and well argued rationale for their inclusion. The collection is wide ranging and thematic, embracing conceptual developments in the way destinations are studied through to key issues for destinations such as sustainability, crises, marketing and destination image. This collection deserves to be a must-purchase collection for any organisation which is interested in destination management.’
