Sue Beeton has produced a seminal book on film-induced tourism, describing in a clear and stimulating way how this exciting research field has evolved over the years. While different theoretical approaches to film-induced tourism are discussed, most chapters leave from a practical, business-based perspective. This combination makes her book not only interesting but highly relevant as well.-- Stijn Reijnders, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
This edition of Sue Beeton's book is truly the only reference you will need to understand film tourism in all its complexities and subtleties. Expanded, updated, more conceptually robust and more case studies makes the book a must read.-- Bob McKercher, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong
This new edition of Sue Beeton's landmark volume is much more than a book on film-induced tourism studies. It is not only the world's latest handbook to understand the puzzling phenomena of tourism in the very complex media environment of the 21st century, but also potentially one of the most important reference books to study how destination management, community planning and intercultural communication should function in the advanced information society of the future.-- Takayoshi Yamamura, Hokkaido University, Japan
Sue Beeton's new edition of Film-Induced Tourism provides a necessary and fresh outlook while being simultaneously complex, well researched and entertaining.-- Ina Reichenberger, University of Wellington, New Zealand * Journal of Tourism Futures, 2018 *
...this is an excellent book which succeeds in untangling the many and varied
tourism aspects of film and television and effortlessly combines applied theory, academic reflection and personal insight with considerable panache. This accessible book is required reading for anyone wanting to develop research in this area and certainly for academics who are keen to incorporate film tourism within a module or indeed to develop a teaching resource around the topic.
Owing to its scientific grounds, the book is a must-have for researchers in the field of creative industries and cultural tourism development, but its simplicity of language complemented with good practice examples makes it highly recommendable also to cultural tourism practitioners and planners.-- Daniela A. Jelincic, IRMO, Croatia * Culturelink, May 2017 *
