Synopsis : The search for new tourism experiences as well as changes in the tourism industry itself has led to new forms of individualised travel and consequentially new forms of backpacker tourism. This volume provides an up-to-date examination of the behaviour, attitudes and motivations of backpacker tourists as well as the growth of the infrastructure behind backpacker tourism phenomenon throughout the world. Drawing upon insights from geography, sociology, anthropology, management and marketing, "Backpacker Tourism" provides theoretically informed case studies of individual destinations of backpackers. This book will be of interest to students and researchers of backpacker tourism as well as those involved in the backpacker tourism industry itself.

Critique: This book offers a number of new insights into the backpacking phenomenon. The volume is definitely well worth reading as both background literature and as a research reference for researchers. Gunter Spreitzhofer, University of Vienna, in Annals of Tourism Research 35 (3)This fascinating and thoughtfully-edited collection of new research illustrates the changing dynamics of backpacker tourism. It makes a solid contribution to our understanding of backpacker tourism, but also raises important questions within ongoing larger debates about power, human societies and change.Dr Mark Hampton, Senior Lecturer in Tourism Management, University of Kent.
