Asia is regarded as the fastest growing area for international and domestic tourism in the world today and over the next 20 years. Given the economic, social and environmental importance of tourism in the region there is a need for a comprehensive and readable overview of the critical debates and controversies in tourism in the region and the major factors that are affecting tourism development both now and in the foreseeable future.

This Handbook is an ambitious survey of the region and its continued growth and development as a key tourism region as a receiver and generator of tourism, with a high proportion of intra-regional travel.  The book is divided into five sections. This first section provides an introduction to the region and context to the nationally focused chapters. The next three sections are then broadly based on the three UNWTO Asian regions: southeast Asia, south and central Asia and east and north-east Asia providing readers with a valuable snapshot of tourism at various scales, and from various approaches and positions with the concluding section considers future prospects for tourism in Asia.  The handbook is interdisciplinary in coverage and is also international in scope through its authorship and content. It presents a range of perspectives and understanding of the processes and forces shaping tourism in this fascinating and dynamic region of global tourism activity.

This is essential reading for students, researches and academics interested in Tourism in the growth region of Asia now and in the future.

Tourism and Entrepreneurship: International Perspectives provides an innovative, interdisciplinary approach.

This book takes as its central theme the role of entrepreneurship in the context of regional, local and national tourism development. By engaging with top academics in both tourism and entrepreneurship this book delivers a cohesive, interdisciplinary examination of the most recent developments in both tourism and entrepreneurship.

Several key themes are explored and articulated through the following concepts and issues: tourism, innovation and entrepreneurship; the role and nature of individual and collective entrepreneurship in different contexts; the role of tourism in responding to development opportunities created by global forces; and finally, issues associated with tourism strategies and policies.

Divided into four parts, the book reflects on the most relevant areas of tourism entrepreneurship:
* Understanding the conceptual basis of tourism entrepreneurship
* Creative use of entrepreneurship and processes of social innovation
* Tourism entrepreneurship mediating the global–local divide
* Sectoral strategies and policy issues of tourism entrepreneurship

Tourism and Entrepreneurship: International Perspective:
* Explains the impact of tourism entrepreneurship on places and overall regional and destination development
* Examines the role of the public sector in facilitating the need for sustainable tourism development
* Examines the effects and implications of funding schemes and support programmes
* Takes the owner, manager and entrepreneur as the starting point of analysis to explore specific issues
* Allows practitioners and policy-makers to explore practical applications and best practice of theory through a diverse range of international case studies
* Contributed to by an international team of leading scholars in tourism and entrepreneurship

This book is a unique combination of theory, case studies and discussion highlighting the importance of entrepreneurial tourism activity for economic success. It is essential reading for students and researchers in both tourism and entrepreneurship.

This fourth edition of The Geography of Tourism and Recreation provides students with a comprehensive introduction to the interrelationship between tourism, leisure and recreation from geographical and social science perspectives. It still remains the only book to systematically compare and contrast in a spatial context, tourism and recreation in relation to leisure time, offering insight into the demand, supply, planning, destination management and impacts of tourism and recreation.
Whilst retaining its accessible style and approach this edition has been significantly updated to reflect recent developments and new concepts from geography which are beginning to permeate the tourism and recreational field. New features include: Content on the most recent developments, climate change, sustainability, mobilities and crisis management in time and space as well as trends such as low cost airlines and the control of land transport by transnational operators in the EU such as Arriva. More attention to management issues such as innovation and the spatial consequences for tourism and leisure development. New case studies and examples to showcase real life issues, from both developed and developing countries, especially the US, China and South Africa. Completely revised and redeveloped to accommodate new, user- friendly features: case studies, insights, summary points and learning objectives.

Written by leading academics, this is essential reading for all tourism, geography, leisure and recreation students.
