The fully updated second edition of The Geography of Tourism and Recreation continues to be a comprehensive and accessible introduction to tourism, leisure and recreation. It not only introduces landmark studies and recent contributions to geographers' expanding interest in how people spend their leisure time, but also seeks to illustrate how recreation and tourism phenomena, are seemingly separate and yet integrated aspects of the wider leisure phenomena. Each chapter offers a distinctive series of insights into how the geographer has approached the analysis of tourism and recreation. New perspectives from human geography are considered, such as the new cultural geographies and gender studies, and this collaboration with other disciplines gives different aspects to explanations of the tourism and recreation phenomena. A range of chapters explore: *the demand for recreation and tourism *the supply of recreation and tourism *the impacts of recreation and tourism *recreation and tourism in urban, rural and coastal environments *recreation and tourism in wilderness areas and national parks *recreation and tourism policy and planning *the future of recreation and tourism and the role of geography in applied research The Geography of Tourism and Recreation remains the only book in the field to systematically compare and contrast tourism and recreation in relation to the use of leisure time, in a spatial context. The second edition has been substantially revised and updated, with new case study material to reflect the new research agendas being engaged in, by geographers and non-geographers concerned with space. Summary points and questions are included to encourage discussion among readers. the text is well-illustrated with plates, maps and diagrams, to highlight international examples that address key concepts and issues in tourism and recreation research in Australasia, Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific.
