This book applies the major concepts and research findings from a number of the central areas of psychology to tourism and tourist behaviour.The book is divided into two parts: the first part cover topics such as tourism motivation, personality and tourism, attitudes and tourism, and tourism and the environment. Part 2 focuses on tourism marketing, human resource management and the industry, evaluation and tourism, and the social impacts of tourism.This book represents a contribution to the growing interface between tourism and psychology in both research and practice. While the book presents current findings from a variety of international perspectives, a focus in each chapter is on major applied psychological research as it now advances the boundaries of this tourism and psychology dialogue.
