Geography of Tourism: Image, Impacts and Issues is the first text that provides both an awareness of the spatial nature of tourism by means of a geographical perspective, and that also offers significant critical analysis of major contemporary geographical themes and issues that relate to tourism. It discusses and critically analyses major global issues relevant to tourism – including climate change, global development, protected environments and sustainability.
Aimed particularly at undergraduate modular courses, it is constructed in a sequence that starts with a largely factual consideration and moves on to a more analytical and critical approach. It begins, by demonstrating the geographical resources for tourism, and the motivations for involvement in the activity. Following this is an investigation of the impacts of tourism, then an analysis of the major geographical issues affecting tourism and a critical review of tourism’s planning and management. Finally there is a concluding section, which considers the future of tourism from a geographical perspective.
Packed with international case studies for illustration and contextualisation of learning, it is a student friendly, interactive text that contains focused activities linked closely to the text and the case studies, with accompanying website material for tutors.

• A stimulating introduction to major geographical concepts in tourism at undergraduate level.
• Combines factual material with more critical analysis of topical tourism/geography issues.
• Global coverage, reinforcing the importance of a geographical perspective to the understanding of tourism.
• Includes case studies from the UK, continental Europe, North America, Australia, New Zealand, the Arctic, Antarctica and selected developing countries/regions, including India, China, Indonesia, Nepal and Southern Africa.
• Discusses and critically analyses major global issues relevant to tourism - climate change, global development, protected environments and sustainability.
