This new edition of The Ecomics of Tourism reflects the tremendous changes that have occurred in the tourism sector in the last twelve years. It recognizes that the nature of tourism demand and supply is being transformed by invations in information communication techlogies, market liberalization and climate change. Paralleling this, there is much greater interest in the study of tourism by both students and researchers in mainstream ecomics. The text is w in four parts covering: demand; supply; national, regional and international matters and environmental issues. The concluding chapter appraises the state of the ecomic research into tourism. The increased interest in tourism has engendered the development of new methods of analysis and the refinement of established ones. Accordingly, the book has been extensively restructured, revised and expanded with two new chapters: chapter six of the first edition is w broken down into two and a new chapter has been added on environmental issues to take account of new developments, critically review the associated literature and consider future trends in tourism ecomics research. The reader-friendliness of the book has also been enhanced in various ways, such as the extensive chapter cross-referencing to refresh the reader's memory and the inclusion of a detailed list of abbreviations. The Ecomics of Tourism will continue to make accessible for the n-specialist, the application and relevance of ecomics to tourism. Extensively revised and updated, including research and case studies the textbook will be an indispensable resource for both students and researchers.
