Sustainable Tourism in Rural Europe

Approaches to Development

Edited by Donald V. L. Macleod and Steven A. Gillespie, both at University of Glasgow

Rural Europe is a highly developed tourism region, representing advanced tourism experience and supposed modern approaches to this industry. That said, it remains highly sensitive and fragile in terms of environmental, social, economic and cultural impacts. This volume focuses on rural Europe as a fascinating example of how tourism development impacts on the communities and the environment of rural regions and offers insights into how long term sustainability could be achieved in this specific region as well as other rural parts in the world.

Sustainable ourism in Rural Europe, reviews and analyzes the concept and practice of sustainable tourism in this region through a mutidisplinary approach that embodies the view that sustainable tourism warrants a holistic view in terms of its impacts and development potential. Well chosen case studies offer real world approaches to sustainable development showing problems including local politics which challenge abstract models.

Forms and Functions

Shopping is perhaps the most universal of tourist activities. Tourists form a separate retailing segment from the general population and place importance on different products and product attributes, contributing billions of dollars each year for both the private and public sector by which retail areas, townscapes and streetscapes can be revitalized This landmark volume – based on a two year research program from a team of authors – examines the forms and functions of approximately 50 tourist shopping villages in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada and the United States. This volume will interest scholars of Tourism, Geography, Business, and Economics, as well as government officials, civic leaders, and individual entrepreneurs and retailers seeking to maximize their returns and local community residents
