Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Compares two island resort groups The Whitsundays in Queensland and The Mamanucas in Fiji, respectively domestic and international destinations for Australian tourists. Draws on marketing and the social, environmental, political sciences to examine perceptions of the destination in key source markets, and profile the type of tourist activity in each resort and how it is managed. Also addresses the critical issue of whether decisions are being made on the islands or on the mainland, based on interviews with managers. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
