Tourism and Development: Concepts and Issues
This book explores the role of tourism as a potential contributor to socio-economic development in destination areas. Establishing a link between tourism studies and development studies, it considers what is meant by 'development', the processes through which development may be achieved and, in particular, a number of fundamental issues related to the use of tourism as a development agent. In so doing, it challenges conventional thinking about the relationship between tourism and development.
