Summary

Since the publication of the first edition of this seminal textbook, the tourism economics landscape has undergone many changes. In this concise revised edition, the authors have incorporated new approaches and ideas influencing tourism economics and policy. This includes discussions of the implications of the sharing economy and its effect on industry structure in accommodation and transport, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques that are being increasingly employed in tourism forecasting. It also includes new material on surface and marine transport, resident quality of life issues, the price mechanism, the economic contribution of tourism, tourism and economic growth, and tourism and sustainable development. It remains an appropriate and accessible text for students, researchers and practitioners in tourism economics and tourism policy.

Review:

I am pleased to recommend the second edition of Tourism Economics and Policy. This textbook is a rich resource for students, practitioners and scholars who want to enhance their knowledge and understanding on the subjects of tourism and sustainable development. It provides a comprehensive picture of the main operations and activities in the tourism industry.
