This book is an edited selection of key research papers published in the field of tourism management during the past ten years. It seeks to take stock of some of the seminal developments in the literature and to examine the evolution of thinking and the development of the subject area, particularly in the emergence of research sub-areas.
The book is organized into a series of parts which reflect the development of new and established areas of research: decision-making and tourist behaviour, tourism demand forecasting, gender and sex in tourism, planning and communities, urban tourism, theme parks, sustainable tourism or eco-tourism, marketing and service quality, and tourism as it affects indigenous peoples. Each part is introduced by commentary that relates the articles to the wider literature and the current progress of knowledge in each area. Underlying the books is a view that only through a continuing dialogue between specific tourism journal articles and a wider social science literature can one consider the 'cutting edge' nature of tourism research and manner in which it is then developed and disseminated. This book is one way of allowing readers to assess the merits of each article and its wider contribution to the tourism literature.
