The major issues in world tourism as it is differentiated on a global regional basis; integrated illustrative case studies.
Tourism is a global industry and phenomenon; one that is integrated into social, political, cultural, environmental, and economic global and local contexts. 'Global Tourism' is designed to examine this reality and to assess how current events and historical trends at global, regional, and local levels shape and can be shaped by tourism as an industry and social phenomenon. This is grounded in a knowledge of the scale of tourism in the regions of the world and its potential for growth.
