Providing a synthesis of tourism as a source of injustice and as a means to address inequality throughout the world, this book addresses a wide range of interrelated forms of inequality and routes towards social justice. It includes relations of class, nation, ethnicity, race, gender, disability and age to social justice initiatives such as poverty alleviation, fair trade, ethics and human rights. It is a useful resource for students of tourism and tourism management, as well as industry professionals and policy makers.

"Overall, the volume is very well-written and not only discusses the contribution of tourism to inequality, but also analyzes how the industry can contribute to reducing inequality. Secondly, it analyzes tourism induced inequalities from differ-
ent perspectives, providing the reader with a broad and in-depth knowledge on the subject."
