2050 Tomorrow S Tourism from the Author: Ian Yeoman. In 2050, it is predicted that 4.7bn or nearly 50% of the world's population will take an international holiday. But can humankind meet that forecast given the issues of ageing populations, peak oil, the global financial crisis and climate change? This book constructs scenarios from Shanghai to Edinburgh, Seoul to California encompassing complex topics such as human trafficking, conferences, transport, food tourism or technological innovation. This is a blue skies thinking book about the future of tourism and a thought-provoking analytical commentary.

Tour Guiding Research from the Author: Dr. Betty Weiler. This book provides an authoritative, state-of-the-art review of tour guiding scholarship and research and aims to foster best practice and to stimulate further study and research on tour guiding across a range of disciplines. It explores how tour guiding theory and practice has evolved over time and what factors have contributed to this. The volume consolidates, synthesises and adds to the knowledge base and foreshadows how current and future trends and issues might impact on tour guiding research and practice in the 21st century. The studies reviewed in this book cover a wide range of contexts in which guided tours are conducted, ranging from city streets to heritage and wildlife tourism attractions, from high-end tourist lodging establishments to national park campgrounds, and from highly developed destinations to very remote ones in both developed and developing countries. The book is well-illustrated and its accessible style with chapter summaries makes it ideal for students as well as researchers.

New Berlin And The Buffalo Valley from the Author: Jeannette Lasansky. Located in the heartland of Union County, New Berlin was considered a cultural, educational, and governmental center for craftsmen, farmers, and tradesmen. The county seat from 1813 to 1855, New Berlin was the gateway to the Buffalo Valley. Located in an area rich in natural resources, New Berlin is bounded by Penns Creek and Shamokin Mountain. The creek was a busy waterway that was used to transport goods, while Shamokin Mountain is known for being rich with iron ore and timber. New Berlin and the Buffalo Valley highlights what life was like in New Berlin and the surrounding communities of Dry Valley, White Springs, Vicksburg, Buffalo Crossroads, Mazeppa, Cowan, Red Bank, Rand, and Forest Hill, the latter a gateway to lush woodlands and clear streams.
