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.

More Information
This comprehensive Handbook brings together conceptual contributions from leading international scholars concerning the reciprocal relations between globalisation and tourism.

Contributors deconstruct the global forces, processes and challenges that face the tourism industry, analysing the effects of neoliberalism and multinational capitalism on global tourist activity, as well as the consequences of colonialism, terrorism, warfare, climate change, modern technological advances and the rapidly changing dynamics of global mobility. International in scope and empirically evocative, this Handbook outlines and dissects the social, cultural, economic and political effects of globalisation on tourism in the 21st century.

This Handbook is critical to human geography and tourism studies scholars and researchers at all levels, particularly those interested in the relations between globalisation and tourism in an increasingly interconnected world.
Critical Acclaim
‘Given the high-quality invited contributions by leading scholars in the field, I strongly believe that this project deserves great recognition and praise, and will surely stand the test of time in the decades to come.’
– Maximiliano E. Korstanje, Tourism Management

‘Written by a veritable "who''s who" of tourism scholars from around the world, the Handbook of Globalisation and Tourism covers a stunning range of critical themes, spanning from geopolitics to the exhausted earth, from cultural issues to innovation. This book cries out “read me”, imploring us to deepen our understanding of the multitude of ways in which tourism acts as a force of globalisation and has wide ranging impacts on people and planet.’
– Regina Scheyvens, Massey University, New Zealand

‘The globalisation of humanity on our planet has always been driven by movements from one place to another. In this way, tourism has come to be a dominant globalising force today. This timely book provides insights from leading scholars on how tourism both produces globalisation and is shaped by a rapidly shrinking world.’
– Alan A. Lew, Northern Arizona University, US

‘Professor Dallen J. Timothy has compiled a very seminal set of papers on the intersection between tourism and globalisation, a theme often overlooked in many scholarly articles and books. The contributors to this volume have produced a landmark study that will become the key reference book on the subject for many years to come and should be a key work for anyone who is interested in tourism as a globalised activity.’
– Stephen Page, University of Hertfordshire, UK
