Handbook Of Tourism Economics from the Author: Professor and Head of the Department of Economics Clement A Tisdell. "Handbook of Tourism Economics: Analysis, New Applications and Case Studies" provides an up-to-date, concise and readable coverage of the most important topics in tourism economics. It pays attention to relevant traditional topics in tourism economics as well as exciting emerging topics in this field — topics which are expected to be of continuing importance. In doing this, it takes account of advances in economic thought, analysis and applied methods. Contributions provide applications of economic analysis to tourism policy and constructive assessment of contemporary thought about tourism economics. The handbook includes several in-depth case studies such as the contribution of tourism to economic development in selected countries including China, India, Japan and Australia, Portugal and Fiji. Coming from diverse countries (both industrialised and developing) and established in the field of tourism economics, travel and management, many of the contributors have been consultants to governments, private organisations, and international bodies, including the UN World Tourism Organisation, the OECD and UNEP. Experts contributing to this volume include the President of the International Association of Tourism Economics, as well as its Secretary-General, the Secretary-General of the Tourism Research Centre (Association of Tourism Research Institutes), the Founder-Fellow of the International Academy for the Study of Tourism and the former Director of the UK's Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment (CSERGE).Contents: "An Overview: "Overview of Tourism Economics "(Clement Tisdell)""The Demand for Touring: "Tourism Demand Models: Concepts and Theories "(Sarath Divisekera)"Empirical Estimation of Tourism Demand Models: A Review "(Sarath Divisekera)"Tourism Market Segmentation: A Step by Step Guide "(Sara Dolnicar)"Tourism Demand in Singapore: Estimating Neighbourhood Effects "(Habibullah Khan and Tan Tat Teck, Francis)"Demand and Cost Consequences of Violence Affecting Domestic Tourism: An Indian Case Study "(Kunal Chattopadhyay)""The Supply of Tourist Services: "The Internationalisation Process of Tourism Firms: The Case of the Hotel Sector "(Zélia Breda and Carlos Costa)"The Lodging Sector and the Global Economy: China's Hotel Industry in International Context "(Liang Larry Yu and Huimin Gu)"Travel and Tourism Intermediaries: Their Changing Role "(Nevenka Čavlek)"The Importance of the Air Transport Sector for Tourism "(Andreas Papatheodorou and Petros Zenelis)"Technical Progress in Transport and the Tourism Area Life Cycle "(Andrew Kato and James Mak)""Studies of Particular Segments of the Tourist Industry: "The Nature and Development of Visitor Attractions "(Stephen Wanhill)"Travelling for Treatment: The Emergence of a Medical Tourist Industry "(Grace Lordan)"Education Tourism "(LA Duhs)"The Business of Amusement Parks: Their Development and Operation "(Stephen Wanhill)"Cruise Tourism "(Adrian O Bull)"Beach, Sun and Surf Tourism "(Neil Lazarow, Mike Raybould and David Anning)""Cost-Benefit Analysis, Public Economics and Tourism: "Tourism Projects and Cost-Benefit Analysis "(Norbert Vanhove)"Public Economics and the Assessment of Tourism Developments and Policies "(Clement Tisdell and Clevo Wilson)"Beaches as Societal Assets: Council Expenditures, Recreational Returns, and Climate Change "(Boyd Dirk Blackwell, Mike Raybould and Neil Lazarow)""Inter-Industry Features of Tourism, Tourism Satellite Accounts: "

Tourism Climate Change And Sustainability from the Author: Maharaj Vijay Reddy. This book addresses many of the key themes that are seen as challenges to achieve sustainability and to mitigate climate change impacts in the near future, in the tourism sector. In particular it focuses on the economic drivers for growth in tourism as they relate to sustainable development, low-carbon travel and climate change impacts. A major feature is the integration of climate change and sustainability challenges, rather than treating them separately or with sustainability as an add-on. The first group of chapters addresses conceptual issues concerning the relationships between sustainability, climate change and tourism. The second section considers regional, national and international responses and initiatives, including those of agencies such as UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves, and the UK’s South West Tourism. The third part provides a range of investigative research, including topics such as air travel and coral reef tourism, and case studies from locations such as southern Africa, Scandinavia and the Pacific islands. Other research dimensions discussed in the book are drawn from Brazil, Hawaii, England, Australia and New Zealand. Overall, the book focuses on some of the most crucial challenges facing tourism in developed and developing countries.

Tourism In Pacific Islands from the Author: Stephen Pratt. Pacific Island Countries have been shown to be especially vulnerable to such external influences as natural disasters, political unrest and downturns in the global economy and their tourism industries have been notably affected. In particular, they typically have a narrow resource base and a fragile and often vulnerable natural environment. While there is some research on islands and small states, there is a dearth of information on the South Pacific and very little research is being undertaken in the region compared to other geographical regions in the world. This volume brings together current work in Pacific Island tourism. In this collection, three main themes arise: Images of the South Pacific; Socio-economic Impacts of Tourism; and Pacific Island Countries and the Outside World. The first focus is on the question of image, namely, stereotypes of a destination held by tourists and potential tourists, the extent to which residents, for their part, really welcome visitors, and the role tourism might play in changing pre-established images. The second theme is tourism's impacts, notably the economic and socio-cultural effects of international tourism's intrusion in the region which, though often hotly debated, have attracted relatively little empirical research. The third focus is on the challenges of how PICs articulate with their external geo-political and physical environment. These involve existing relations with formal colonial centres, geographical isolation, the need for greater air access to the outside world and for more tourists, and the continuing threat to several PICs of global warming, which increased air travel will inevitably exacerbate. This text will be of interest to tourism students, researchers and academics in the fields of tourism, development studies and cultural studies.
