Component type: book



This Dictionary, produced by a distinguished and varied panel of international editors, is an invaluable reference for students, academics, practitioners, researchers, policy makers. For the first time, it compiles and defines a comprehensive glossary of terms used in the event-specific literature. Whilst many of these terms are commonplace, their usage in the events literature is often specific and in need of interpretation.

Whilst there are numerous short entries and basic definitions, the emphasis has been placed on terms with high relevance to planned events, and in particular to theories, concepts and models specific to event studies. Multiple usages, including quotations are provided, where relevant, to cover the breadth of meanings and applications of the terms.
