Overview

Creating Island Resorts uses two comparative case studies to highlight the differences and challenges facing tourism today in the developing and developed worlds. Going beyond the more commonly enountered marketing analyses of resort destinations, King

examines social, cultural, environmental, organizational and political dimensions of tourism. While describing the uniqueness of tropical island resorts such as Fiji, the areas they occupy, the people who live and work there, and the tourists who visit them, King integrates discussion

of the social, cultural, mythical, environmental, and political dimensions as well.

Creating Island Resorts is the second title in the Routledge Advances in Tourism series.

about the future and sustainability of island resorts (Michael Fagence, University of Queensland)

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.
