The importance of political boundaries in the development, function and flow of tourism cannot be overemphasized. In light of today's political transformations and processes of globalization, this book provides a systematic examination of the relationships between boundaries and tourism, and offers a basis upon which tourism can be better managed and researched in a geo-political context.


'This book gives a bird's-eye view of the world's geographical, historical and political boundaries which is illuminating.' - Joaquina Pires-O'Brien, Contemporary Review.
