Contemporary Tourist Behaviour
Yourself and Others as Tourists
by David Bowen
This fully updated edition responds to themes emerging over the decade since publication of the first edition and transmits the content into the 2020s. The themes include technological change, ethical consumption, and the tourist response to health risk, political instability and other uncertainty. Examples are introduced from all parts of the world, capturing the explosion of research on tourist behaviour, to produce a text that is strong both on theory and practical application. The second edition: - Compares classic and contemporary studies. - Evaluates recently emergent themes. - Discusses worldwide examples. - Contains extensive use of figures/tables and full colour photographic images. This is the go-to text for students and academics interested in tourist behaviour both from within the tourism field and from other fields and disciplines.
