Publisher Comments:

Capturing the taste of the industry, Tourism: Concepts and Practices explores this exciting field using a systems approach. Building on the author’s experience, it looks at the characteristics of tourism and the demand side first, then organizing tourism, followed by the operating sectors. Full-color photographs, industry profiles, and a career emphasis reveal the opportunities tourism holds for both consumers and professionals.  Special geography spotlights examine the reasons people travel and the places people go.
