FORThCOMINg Tourism and Poverty
Regina Scheyvens, Massey University, New Zealand
ourism and Poverty addresses a critical question facing many academics, governments, aid agencies, tourism organizations, and conservation bodies around the world: Can tourism work as a tool to overcome poverty? This book is the first to present a focused description and critique of the issues surrounding poverty and tourism. Relying on a wealth of primary data on tourism, Regina Scheyvens supports her findings with novel case studies from her own research, such as a ‘voyeurs of poverty’-style ‘volunteer tour’ in Nepal, to pro-poor changes being implemented by major British tour operators, to community-controlled budget tourism in Samoa. This book will fundamentally alter the way academics and tourism professionals understand the current and potential role of tourism in alleviating poverty.

FORThCOMINg Mining Heritage and Tourism
A Global Synthesis
Edited by Michael V. Conlin, Okanagan College, Canada and Lee Jolliffe, University of New Brunswick, USA
Many former mining areas have now lost their industrial function and are now turning to tourism for regional revitalization and community economic development. The transformation process of these industrial, and in some cases derelict, mining sites and landscapes into an area of interest for tourists is a major challenge both for planners and for tourism managers.
Mining Heritage and ourism includes contributions from internationally recognized authorities and is the first book to focus on these issues, challenges and potentials in redeveloping mines as cultural heritage attractions which are explored thematically throughout the book. It draws on multidisciplinary research to consider the dichotomy between heritage preservation and tourist development goals for mining heritage sites as well as to explore the practical challenges of developing these sites. These themes are illustrated by case studies from a vast range of geographical locations around the globe to offer operational insights into the planning and management of these sites for both heritage and tourism purposes, as well as innovative site management techniques.
There has never before been a more comprehensive book on mining heritage tourism representing the latest developments in strategy, policy and practices. This book serves as an invaluable guide for students, researchers, academics and practitioners in the areas of Tourism and Heritage Management.
