MEDIA REVIEWS
"valiantly, and successfully, attempts to cover a difficult, diverse and ever-evolving subject. While not a traditional encyclopedia, organized as an alphabetic directory with explanations of terms and topics, it is certainly encyclopedic in its coverage and content. ... In fact, each of the 41
chapters could stand alone as an in-depth treatment of a particular aspect of tourism theory and/or practice. Geographic coverage is also complete ... The result is an extremely comprehensive, insightful and valuable resource ... This encyclopedia ... may be used in any number of ways: as a
comprehensive treatise to be read in chronological order; as a textbook which can be excerpted from; as a reference tool for understanding terms, methodologies, practices, theories, etc.; or as a resource for delving deeply into specific topics relating to ecotourism and sustainable
tourism."--Abigail Rome, an independent consultant in ecotourism and conservation based outside of Washington, DC
"This is a very significant contribution to the body of knowledge as it includes both regional case studies and methodologies for applying environmental policies to destinations."--Tourism
