Description

Tourism is the act of travel for the purpose of leisure, recreation, and the provision of services for this act. It is one of the world’s largest industries and one of its fastest growing economic sectors. Many sovereignties, along with their respective countries and states, depend heavily upon travel expenditures by foreigners as a source of taxation and income for the enterprises that sell services to these travelers.

Written for the use of students, researchers, professionals and policy planners in the field of tourism, the present publication elaborately narrates the major issues and concerns in this rapidly growing field. The first volume, Tourism: Policies, Planning and Governance is concerned with the planning and governance of tourism.

The second volume, Tourism, Environment and the Society discusses the environmental and social impacts of tourism in detail. The third volume, Tourism and Resource Management describes various strategies to effectively manage tourism and its resources. This highly informative, authentic and up-to-date work will be interesting to all those concerned with tourism, leisure and recreation.
