Sustainable Tourism Futures from the Author: Stefan Gössling. A global industry and an important tool for economic development, international tourism is facing an increasingly uncertain future. Global environmental change, including climate change; increasing fuel prices; and growing criticism from environmental and social interest groups are posing substantial challenges to the belief that international tourism can be sustainable at current rates and patterns of growth. This book therefore aims to answer the questions of if and how tourism can be a sustainable industry. The book concludes that sustainable tourism is possible but that it requires fundamental shifts in operations, systems and philosophies. The various contributions identify a number of means by which this can be accomplished but stress that sustainable tourism still has a long way to travel before it can reach its destination.

Tourism Research from the Author: Douglas G. Pearce. Tourism Research: a 20:20 vision examines how research agendas have evolved and might develop in coming years, consider conceptual and methodological advances, discuss obstacles that have been encountered and suggest ways forward. Its underpinning objective is to better understand how and why tourism research advances, or why it does not, and to provide a clearer sense of direction for researchers in this field. In this edited collection of reflective, challenging and sometimes provocative papers, derived from the 20th Anniversary meeting of the International Academy for the Study of Tourism, leading international tourism scholars from a range of disciplines, analyse what progress has been made in tourism research in the last two decades and where research might go in the future. These insights from acknowledged international experts in their field are invaluable to the current generation as well as new and emerging tourism researchers who will benefit from a greater understanding of how the field of tourism studies has evolved, what factors have shaped its development and how it might develop in the future. The collection begins with a series of stimulating broader perspectives on progress in tourism research. The next two sections focus on advances in research on tourism development and the business of tourism and on the path tourism research has taken in particular parts of the world which have experienced a significant growth in tourism in recent years. The final section considers more recent and emerging themes in tourism research and discusses how research on new topics arises and might proceed. In the concluding chapter, the editors identify lessons learnt and suggest ways forward.

Network Analysis And Tourism from the Author: Noel Scott. This book aims to provide a comprehensive review of the contribution of network analysis to the understanding of tourism destinations and organizations. Theoretical and methodological aspects are discussed along with a series of applications. While this is a relatively new approach in the tourism literature, in other social and natural sciences network analysis has a long tradition and has provided important insights for the knowledge of the structure and the dynamics of many complex systems. The study of network structures, both from a quantitative and qualitative point of view, can deliver a number of useful outcomes also for the analysis of tourism destinations and organizations.

Green Tourism Futures from the Author: . The National Climate Change Adaptation Framework identified tourism as one key sector vulnerable to the impacts of climate change in Australia. This paper evaluates how nine government tourism agencies are responding to the issue of climate change in Australia. Information on climate change, sustainability and going green is drawn from the corporate websites, annual reports, tourism plans, fact sheets, and case studies produced by these government tourism agencies from 2007 to 2010. The paper critically evaluates how government tourism agencies are addressing climate change issues, by promoting carbon reduction initiatives and carbon offsetting schemes for tourism operators. Climate change tourism responses are more developed in Australian states with climate change policies and in destinations vulnerable to the impacts of climate change or dependent on long haul travellers.
