Product description


"Managing Sustainable Tourism is a must read for educators, students, tourism strategists, policymakers, planners, developers, entrepreneurs, and investors. This second edition explores critical issues and trends impacting tourism, the world’s largest industry, while concurrently examining global challenges and opportunities. Through case studies, policy analysis, and management practices, Dr. David Edgell provides multifaceted approaches to managing sustainable tourism that brilliantly bridge theory and practice. Managing Sustainable Tourism also brings to attention the importance of “coopetition” and the critical relationship needed among local communities with the private sector, not-for-profit organizations, academic institutions, and governments. Sustainable tourism, as shared through this new edition, is a legacy for the future and a potential driving force toward economic development, conservation of the natural environment, and global peace." - Kristen Betts, Clinical Professor, EdD Program in Educational Leadership & Management, Drexel University, USA.

"The new edition of Managing Sustainable Tourism is a tremendous resource for those seeking to learn more about tourism issues ranging from rural sustainability challenges to urban development opportunities and the history of sustainable tourism to sustainable tourism issues expected to affect the future.  This book will be good for not only students and tourism professionals, but also for community planners."  - Jason R. Swanson, Ph.D., Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of Retailing and Tourism Management, University of Kentucky
