This groundbreaking book is the first to provide a thorough review and analysis of tourism research. The book is organised around topical themes and moves logically with a review of the beginnings of tourism research, to a discussion of emerging forms of tourism and future direction, which are supported with numerous international examples from the planning and development stage. The underlying theoretical dimensions of tourism research are reviewed, analyzed and discussed from a range of perspectives.
