Tourism can be a challenging subject for students because it is both dynamic and susceptible to economic turbulence and shifts in trends. Tourism: A Modern Synthesis is an essential textbook for tourism students seeking a clear and comprehensive introduction to their studies that addresses these challenges. The authors apply a business approach to the subject, reflecting developments in the teaching and content of university courses, and the text covers both key principles and contemporary themes and issues at a global scale.

Among the new features and topics included in this fifth edition are:

  • New and fully updated case studies to reflect current trends and emerging markets including Africa and Asia.
  • Up-to-date content on disruptive technologies such as Airbnb, low-cost airlines, the e-travel revolution and future developments.
  • Current debates in sustainable tourism including the anti-tourism movement, plastic use and the Sustainable Development Goals.
  • New content on evolving topics such as future employment, human resource management in tourism and generational marketing.
  • Fully updated statistics and data.
  • A brand-new Companion Website including an instructor’s manual, supplementary case studies, weblinks, quiz questions and PowerPoint slides.

This is the ideal guide to tourism for students across all levels, serving as a point of reference throughout a programme of study.
