'Since few hospitality, recreation, transportation, or attraction managers have a grasp of the entire tourism sector and the issues that weave through it, this book is an excellent introduction to the broad scope of tourism, from history through interindustry links and impacts, to the government role and the future of this rapidly changing phenomenon'
Douglas C. Frechtling, George Washington University, Journal of Travel Research.
