Synopsis

Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management is a unique text, which links these three key areas of tourism: impacts, planning and management.

Tourism impacts are multi-faceted and therefore are difficult to plan for and manage. This book looks at all the key players involved - be they tourists, host communities or industry members - and considers a number of approaches and techniques for managing tourism successfully.

Divided into four parts, this text discusses:
* The growth, development and impacts of tourism
* Tourism planning and management: concepts, issues and key players
* Tools and techniques in tourism planning and management: education, regulation and information technology
* The future of tourism planning and management: issues of sustainability and the future

Up-to-date, international case studies are used, for example the impacts of 9/11 and terrorism in Bali, to illustrate and provide a real-life context for the theories discussed. Exercises are also included to consolidate learning.
