Handbook of Geotourism

Edited by Ross Dowling, Edith Cowan University and David Newsome, Murdoch University, Australia

Ross Dowling and David Newsome present an original, substantial and much-needed contribution to the field which will further our understanding of geotourism in theory and practice. This Handbook defines, characterises and explores the subject through a range of international perspectives and case studies, identifying geotourism as a rapidly emerging form of urban and regional sustainable development.

‘This comprehensive publication on the subject of geotourism is both a worthy and weighty contribution to the subject. . . . The editors intend this book to act as an international resource, for geotourism practitioners and also for those engaged in higher education and research. In my opinion, given the wealth of material included from a wide variety of contributors, combined with perspectives from around the world, they have most definitely succeeded.’
– Eleanor Brown, Proceedings of the Geologists’ Association
