Tourism Impacts, Planning and Management is a unique text, which links these three crucial areas of tourism - impacts, planning and management.

Tourism impacts are multi-faceted and therefore are difficult to plan for and manage. This title looks at all the key players involved - be they tourists, host communities or industry members - and considers a number of approaches and techniques for managing tourism impacts successfully.

Now in its fourth edition, this bestselling text has been fully revised to include:

  • New material on overtourism, dark tourism, child sex tourism in South East Asia, festival tourism, regional development, and artificial intelligence.
  • Updated tourism data and statistics
  • New case studies on the economic impacts of tourism in France, the twenty places most reliant on tourism in 2018, Fáilte Ireland’s survey of good environmental practice in the industry, corporate social responsibility, as well as the above topical issues in tourism.
  • An updated companion website including PPTs, video and web links and a case study archive.

The text is written in an accessible style and includes a plethora of features that engage and aid understanding. This accessible yet academically rigorous introduction to tourism impacts, planning and management is essential reading for all tourism students.
