Description
‘. . . I think this to be first rate and it will make a substantial contribution to the literature. . .’
– William Theobald, Purdue University, US

‘. . . I enjoyed reading the review and overview chapters. I am convinced that the collection of contributions will be most useful in teaching and classroom discussion. Many journals are (in vain) looking for comprehensive review articles of this kind.’
– Josef A. Mazanec, Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, Austria

Tourism is a major global industry and continues to expand at a rapid rate. This two-volume collection of key published articles provides a comprehensive and much needed overview of the economics of tourism. Many of these articles are not readily available as they have been published in a range of non-economics journals. This reflects partly the presence of specialised journals devoted to tourism and partly the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. The editor has prepared an authoritative introduction, which not only presents an overview of the contents of each volume, introducing the subject to a wider non-specialist audience, but also provides insights and critical comments.

Contents
77 articles, dating from 1977 to 1998 Contributors include: B. Archer, J. Diamond, J.H. Dunning, L. Dwyer, H.P. Gray, J. Mak, C.A. Martin, M.T. Sinclair, S.R.C. Wanhill, S.F. Witt

Further information

‘Tisdell’s collection provides a panoramic view of tourism economics as it existed up to about 1998. Economists as well as other social scientists, tourism managers, policymakers, entrepreneurs, consultants, and students will find the collection valuable . . . This two-volume set is unprecedented in tourism economics and, perhaps, in tourism studies . . . Tisdell has given substantial thought to the collection and ordering of the papers included. This thought is made manifest in superb introductory essays by Tisdell for each volume. Each is an exegesis for the writings – comparing, contrasting, analyzing, and synthesizing the divers view points of so many authors who, if laid end-to-end, could never reach a conclusion . . . the range of insights, examples, models, methods, and theories covered make this a "must-by" for any tourism research library.’
– Stephen Smith, Annals of Tourism Research

‘To sum up the two volumes as a whole, there has clearly been much work involved in assembling this extensive compilation of articles on tourism economics.’
– Harry Clarke, Economic Record

‘The literature on the economics of tourism has appeared in a wide variety of sources, and so it has been difficult for a researcher new to the area to quickly gain an overview of the field. Professor Tisdell has done an excellent job of bringing together the most important work in the area and putting it in context. This collection should be useful to both students and researchers. It may even stimulate me to do some more work in the area.’
– Brian Copeland, University of British Columbia, Canada

Tourism is a major global industry and continues to expand at a rapid rate. This two-volume collection of key published articles provides a comprehensive and much needed overview of the economics of tourism. Many of these articles are not readily available as they have been published in a range of non-economics journals. This reflects partly the presence of specialised journals devoted to tourism and partly the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. The editor has prepared an authoritative introduction, which not only presents an overview of the contents of each volume, introducing the subject to a wider non-specialist audience, but also provides insights and critical comments.

The first volume concentrates on the basic economics of tourism. It covers the nature and role of tourism economics, determinants of tourism demand and the forecasting of such demand, supply-side aspects of tourism including industrial organization and issues in managerial economics, and public finance and public economics in relation to tourism. The second volume examines wider matters such as impact analyses of tourism, international tourism, tourism in developing countries and its role in economic development, and sustainability and environmental aspects of tourism.

This book is a valuable reference for researchers, students and policymakers interested in tourism economics and tourism management, as well as non-specialists seeking an introduction to the subject.
