The current tourism textbook market is saturated with books that conform to an outdated mode... this book presents a fresh look at tourism topics exploring emerging markets, new niches, and alternative development models from using a local-to-global framework. As such the book will more accurately portray the content and context of global tourism. The project has great potential to be considered the first 21st century tourism textbook

For the growing number of students and researchers engaging with tourism, this book provides an excellent entry point to the major concepts which help frame our understanding of this global and multi-layered phenomenon. This compact book provides a valuable service in introducing the diversity of concepts we need in tourism studies
