Editorial Reviews

Professor Dean Mac Cannell
This is the strongest overview I have encountered of the scope and the current state of research across all the fields involved in advancing our understanding of tourism. For its range of topics, depth of analyses, and distinction of its contributors, nothing is comparable. It will be greeted enthusiastically as an indispensable reference source.
Professor Mike Crang
The breadth of vision and sweep of accounts is remarkable, and range of topics laudable... a rare combination of the authoritative, the challenging and stimulating.
Miroslava Dimitrova
The SAGE Handbook of Tourism Studies is a really useful and helpful book that gives a comprehensive and thorough overview of all aspects of tourism studies. The book is addressed to a wide range of people, including students, academics and professionals in tourism. It could be used either as a textbook or as an indispensable source of references… a valuable acquisition to the tourism section of any library.
