Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management is a unique text, which links the three crucial areas of tourism: impacts, planning and management.

Tourism impacts are multifaceted and are therefore difficult to plan for and manage. This title looks at all the key players involved – be they tourists, host communities or industry members – and considers a number of approaches and techniques for managing tourism impacts successfully.

Now in its Fourth Edition, this bestselling text has been fully revised to include:

  • new material on overtourism, dark tourism, child sex tourism in South East Asia, festival tourism, regional development and Artificial Intelligence
  • updated tourism data and statistics
  • new case studies on the economic impacts of tourism in France, the 20 places most reliant on tourism in 2018, Fáilte Ireland’s survey of good environmental practice in the industry, corporate social responsibility, as well as the above topical issues in tourism
  • an updated Companion Website that includes PowerPoints, video and web links and a case study archive.

The text is written in an accessible style and includes a plethora of features that engage and aid understanding. This accessible yet academically rigorous introduction to tourism impacts, planning and management is essential reading for all tourism students.

Reviews

'At a time when the need for effective planning and management of tourism is becoming ever more acute, this new edition explores critically the contemporary consequences of tourism development and means of addressing them. Comprehensive, easy to read, yet thought-provoking, with up-to-date case studies, detailed practical examples and challenging student exercises, it is essential reading for students of tourism and related subjects.'

Richard Sharpley, Professor of Tourism & Development, University of Central Lancashire

 

'This book offers readers a strong understanding of tourism impacts, planning and management in an accessible manner. What makes it stand out is its willingness to look at some of the lesser-explored, but important, dark corners of tourism. In particular, the examination of sex, including child sex, tourism is to be applauded. The examination of overtourism in the book is also extremely timely.'

Professor Neil Carr, University of Otago, New Zealand
