Product description


Resilience is a concept that has largely been treated as an apolitical metaphor in social science. This book goes a considerable way to moving beyond the metaphor and acknowledging the normative but many-faceted implications of resilience thinking. The in-depth and systematic inquiry offers insights into how resilience can be politically understood and given analytical traction in tourism studies and practice, insisting on the consequences for management and accountability when faced with the immediacy of social, economic and ecological justice in the Anthropocene.--Johan Hultman, Lund University, Sweden

This book carries tourism scholarship into a refreshing new future that was long overdue and that will undoubtedly set a new and innovative standard for understanding tourism globally. There is not another industry in the world where the concepts of resilience and social-ecological systems are more relevant and Hall, Prayag and Amore have done a marvellous job drawing together these complex concepts in a digestible and enjoyable text.--Jackie Dawson, University of Ottawa, Canada
