Overview

In order to address the key debates that challenge tourism researchers, certain criteria need to be laid out and a conceptual framework established to help research progress in a rigorous and useful way. This collection, with contributions from an international panel of experts, offers an innovative analysis of research issues in tourism and tests conceptual and methodological issues from a variety of perspectives including geography, sociology, psychology, management and planning. It questions native stereotypes, impact assessment, tourist motivation and policy on both local and global levels and assesses how far tourism is interdisciplinary as well as identifying patterns for future research and development.
