Critical Acclaim
‘The book is a wonderful compilation of literature containing chapters that identify information challenges, research gaps, questions and possible opportunities for sustainable tourism along with topics that are applicable across different contexts (social, political or geographical) allowing a better understanding of the functionality and management of tourism-related systems in the face of change. In general, it will be a good resource for students and scholars working in the fields of tourism geography, environmental studies and policy and tourism management and hospitality.’
– Nitasha Sharma, International Journal of Tourism Policy
