Tourism has attracted increasing interest from t only scholars with a background in the subject, but also those studying in a number of other fields, given the growing relevance of areas such as psychology, sociology, planning and marketing. As such, this book brings together twelve chapters addressing various aspects of tourism development, from sustainability and ecotourism to cases of developing alternative tourism products. The contributions are enriched through selected practical case studies from a wide range of countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Slovenia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Mexico, South Africa, France, Turkey, and Argentina. The book, systematic in structure and thorough in content, will be useful for people from academic and practical backgrounds seeking to update their current kwledge of tourism development.
