Divided into nine parts, Leisure Marketing: a global perspective guides the reader through leisure and marketing concepts, the marketing mix, key issues in different sectors, topical issues (such as globalisation, marketing research and ethics, for example branding and environmental issues), and the future of leisure marketing.

- Disneyland Resort, Paris: The Marketing Mix
- Manchester United Football Club: Marketing the Brand
- The Growth of the Online Retail Travel Market
- Hilton Head Island, USA: The Leisure Island for Golf and Leisure Shopping
