3rd Edition

Tourism and Sustainability

Development, Globalisation and New Tourism in the Third World

Martin Mowforth, University of Plymouth, UK and Ian Munt, Freelance Human Settlements Specialist

From previous editions:

‘...the book is quite simply one of the most important theoretical contributions to the growing subdiscipline of tourism geography and is likely to be a mainstay for many years to come.’ – Keith Debbage, Annals of the Association of American Geographers

ourism and Sustainability critically explores and challenges what have emerged as the most significant universal geopolitical norms of the last half century – development, globalization and sustainability – and through the lens of new forms of tourism demonstrates how we can better understand and get to grips with the rapidly changing new global order. This third edition has been extensively updated and includes new material on:

  • poverty reduction, livelihoods and pro-poor tourism

  • new forms of tourism in cities

  • continuing growth of the fair trade movement

  • tourism’s contribution to climate change

  • volunteer and ‘gap’ tourism

  • affect of disasters on new tourism.

Drawing on a range of examples from across the Third World, illustrates the social, economic and environmental conditions for the growth of new tourism. The book is original in its assessment of tourism through the lens of power – who holds it; how it is used; and who benefits from the exercise of power in the tourism industry.
