A useful & insightful addition to the hospitality literature. The book clearly & concisely presents a wide range of relevant introductory material to the student, while providing valuable pointers for the student in indicating further areas of study that might be pursued in greater depth.

'An introduction to the UK hospitality industry: A comparative approach' edited by Bob Brotherton, would be an eminently suitable core text for an introductory course in hospitality management, particularly if the focus is domestic (UK) rather than international. The book is suitable for first or second year students on hospitality management HND or degree courses. I believe that the book is also useful for final year students writing a project or dissertation on a subject requiring a comparative approach........'a blend of the finest ingredients. A rich, strong & robust melange'
