Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...in spite of this ‘topsy-turvy’ time we live in, I found much of this book highly thought provoking, timely and rewarding.

...primarily written for upper-level and graduate students with a particular interest in this specialist area. It will also be useful to researchers and practitioners in the field of tourism, hospitality, food studies and rural regional development."
- Andy Gatleya, School of Tourism, Hospitality and Leisure, Thames Valley University, London
