Klappentext

Tourism and Recreation

explores the relationship between tourism and recreation. Whilst tourism and recreation form related realms within the wider field of leisure, few books have attempted to examine the nature of that relationship and how it may be changing through time and across space. Through a discussion that examines, in turn, the development of seaside resorts; international travel; tourism and recreation in urban and rural environments; and policy issues, the book aims to show that in both historic and contemporary terms, tourism and recreation are intimately related.

Tourism and Recreation is a core text that will interest intermediate and final year students reading for degrees in travel and tourism, as well as students in disciplines such as geography, sociology and cultural studies.

This is an excellent addition to the Themes in Tourism series which examines a range of contemporary concepts, ideas and issues relating to tourism.
