Tourism is a vital tool for political and economic change. Calls for boycotts by tourists of countries with undesirable political regimes, the use of tourism to initiate political discussions, increased pressure for fair trade, and the use of tourism for economic transformation all reflect the huge impact that tourist activity and the tourism industry has on political change.

Now in its second edition Tourism and Political Change addresses these issues of great current relevance and importance focussing on events and their impacts. It is completely revised and updated and includes new material on:

  • The effects of the development of neo-liberalism on tourism development at the global level;
  • East Africa and the potential for tourism from the coordination several neighbouring countries and the combining of visas for tourists;
  • New material on effects of politics in tourism in South America;
  • The changing patterns of tourism in North Africa and Arab world and the potential implications of political uncertainty and regime change in that region;
  • The implications for tourism from the formal involvement of indigenous nations and organisations in tourism planning and development;
  • Issues of political involvement in tourism development and subsequent corruption and mismanagement of projects.
As well as much more, all of which are used as a lens to discuss the past, present and future of the tourism industry.

With international contributions from an esteemed list of experienced individuals, the book is subdivided into five sections, one introducing general themes and issues (Introduction) and one summarising key findings and implications (Conclusions) and three thematic sections with original chapters which between them cover a variety of political changes in many different parts of the world at different scales and their resulting effects on tourism.
