Tourism Development Principles, Processes, and Policies


Tourism Development Principles, Processes, and Policies by W.C. Gartner

For tourism professionals and urban and regional planners, this highly readable text introduces tourism development as a process with its own organizational structures and its own responses to the economic cycle of supply and demand. Here, the author keeps pace with the changing trends in tourism, its link with economic theory, and academic research as well as accessibility to travelers with across-the-board economic backgrounds.


...a good overview of many of the issues relevant to tourism development... It certainly is a book that tourism academics would want to have on their bookshelf... (International Journal of Tourism Research, May 2002)
