Managing Sustainable Tourism tackles the tough issues of tourism such as negative environmental impact and cultural degradation, and provides answers that don’t sacrifice positive economic growth. It offers practical plans for fostering harmonious relationships among local communities, the private sector, not-for-profit organizations, academic institutions, and governments at all levels as well as develops management practices and philosophies that protect natural, built, and cultural environments while reinforcing positive and orderly economic growth.

Since the first edition, there have been many important developments in the field, and this second edition has been revised and updated in the following ways: 

  • Updated content to reflect issues and trends, including: impact of the internet, slow tourism, responsible tourism, pro – poor tourism and motivations of the individual tourist
  • New and updated international case studies of successes and failures to reflect current challenges and practices
  • New lecturer and student online resources including PowerPoint slides and practical scenarios.

This volume provides a wealth of information and guidance on managing sustainable tourism now and in the future and will be invaluable to educators, students, developers, entrepreneurs, investors, tourism strategists, planners and policymakers.
