Major changes have occurred in the tourism industries in Central Europe which have implications not just for the countries involved but for all of the tourism industries in Europe. Tourism in Transition provides a detailed analysis of the role of tourism in the economic transition which has swept central and eastern Europe since 1989. The work on privatization in particular is highly innovative and will be of interest to a wider community of social scientists beyond tourism specialists.
