* A chapter on sustainable tourism including ecotourism, sustainable mass tourism and industry responses and practives
* A chapter on tourism research which introduces students to the function and scope of research in this area
* Four practical features in each chapter to illustrate and reinforce the theory:

-- Managing tourism: illustrates how a tourism-related process or company has been managed and the issues involved in doing so

-- Contemporary issue: a brief case study which discusses a contemporary tourism issue such as the formation of strategic airline alliances, sex tourism, and the importance of international students as a component of Australian tourism
