Full Description

Fundamental to the study of tourism is the relationship between tourism and development. Tourism represents a major sector of the global economy and, as such, is considered by many to be an effective driver of economic growth and development in destination areas. Importantly, however, most destinations face what has been referred to as a 'development dilemma'. Whilst the benefits afforded by tourism, including income, foreign exchange and government revenue generation, employment, economic linkages, infrastructural development and environmental enhancement, are recognised, so too are the negative consequences of tourism development. This Major Work illustrates tourism and development through a collection of key papers which have contributed to knowledge of and debates in this significant area of tourism studies. The literature is framed by an extensive introductory chapter which highlights the key concepts, themes and debates. Volume One: The Tourism-Development Dilemma: The Benefits and Costs of Tourism Volume Two: Tourism and Sustainable Development Volume Three: Tourism Alternatives Volume Four: Contemporary Tourism and Development Issues
