Tourism Dynamics: New perspectives and changing directions provides theoretical and practical insights with a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary approach to the study of tourism and emerging topics that will change the future of the industry, either positively or negatively.

With contributions from an international body of academic experts, each chapter highlights and critiques emerging insights and is underpinned with a thorough theoretical and practical knowledge.
Issues discussed include risk management awareness; well-being in tourism; the online purchasing process; volunteer tourism; destination resilience and competitiveness and much more.
Tourism Dynamics: New perspectives and changing directions is a must have volume for all tourism and hospitality students and educators, enabling students to enhance their critical thinking skills and educators to reflect on the influences of new directions on the industry.
