Today marks the publication of Critical Debates in Tourism edited by Tej Vir Singh which is a comprehensive volume encompassing the key issues in tourism research. Tej Vir Singh is the founding Director of the Centre for Tourism Research and Development in Lucknow, India and established the Centre’s international journal Tourism Recreation Research.
This new volume brings together the key researchers in the field and provides a multidisciplinary examination of the fundamental debates of tourism studies. It covers topics ranging from the relevance of mass tourism, voluntourism, slow tourism, the impact of climate change, the dilemma of authenticity as well as tourism ethics. This book is unique in its format and will be an essential resource for tourism scholars and practitioners.
Noel Scott from the University of Queensland calls it: “A must for those wanting to get to grips with the key tourism debates” and John Tribe from the University of Surrey describes the volume as ” a fascinating book…highly recommended.”
Critical Debates in Tourism is part of our Aspects of Tourism series which aims to provide readers with the latest thinking on tourism world-wide and to push back the frontiers of tourism knowledge.
