"Tourism: Principles and Practice is an introductory level book on tourism that gathers all relevant aspects on contemporary tourism. The new Chapter 10, Tourism under Crises, exemplifies the text's broad view of tourism. The case studies presented are elucidative on the types and characteristics of the crises faced in contemporary world and the policy implications of it are clear derived. Therefore this book will have a great impact on future of tourism teaching."
Carlos Barros, Department of Economics, TechnicalUniversity of Lisbon
"While there are many student textbooks that attempt to introduce the fundamental principles, practices and theories of tourism, there is none that does it as comprehensively as this one. The extensively revised fourth edition of this popular, user-friendly and hugely informative book uses a wide spread of case study material to illustrate key issues and practices in the tourism industry in a lively and thorough way. I highly recommend it."
Konstantinos Andriotis, Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University
"Tourism: Principles and Practice is certainly one of the most comprehensive introductory texts to tourism. It brings together leading scholars from different disciplines and integrates knowledge from an array of academic fields such as economics, geography and marketing. This new edition also addresses timely issues, for example, the linkages between tourism and climate change. The new case studies from all over the world make manifest the book's position as contemporary classic among tourism textbooks."
Dieter K. M¨¹ller, Professor, Department of Social and Economic Geography, Ume¦~ University, Sweden
