Tourism and Urban Regeneration: Processes Compressed in Time and Space presents the global phenomenon of tourism and urban regeneration through the contemporary frames of spatial planning theory, metagovernance, resilience and disaster capitalism. Drawing upon cases from several cities around the globe, the book advances the field with the inclusion of examples from post-disaster rebuilding and recovery.
The book is rooted in a theoretical framework that considers time, space and tourism as core facets for the analysis. By doing so, it provides readers with an understanding of different yet similar processes of urban development and identifies the principles for tourism and urban regeneration to effectively contribute to socio-economic growth, urban change and long-term sustainability. The theory is illustrated through insightful case studies covering a range of urban tourism destinations including Dubai, Newcastle, Christchurch, Pittsburgh, Detroit and Taipei.
This will be of great interest to upper-level students and researchers in Tourism as well as those in the fields of Geography, Urban Planning and Policy, and Development.

Routledge Focus on Tourism and Hospitality presents small books on big topics and how they intersect with the world of tourism and hospitality research. The idea is to fill the gap between journal article and book. This new short form series offers both established and early-career academics the flexibility to publish cutting-edge commentary on key areas of tourism and hospitality, topical issues, policy-focused research, analytical or theoretical innovations, a summary of the key players or short topics for specialized audiences in a succinct way.
