It has long been recognized that tourism unhindered and unrestricted can have extremely negative social, cultural, environmental, and economic consequences. As a result, new approaches to tourism development have emerged in recent decades to mitigate the worst of these effects. Tourism planning, based on sound principles of sustainable development, has the potential to improve the outcomes of tourism by empowering destination residents, preserving the cultural and ecological integrity of destinations, and engaging indigenous knowledge.

As work in tourism planning continues to flourish, this new title from Routledge’s Critical Concepts in Tourism series meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of a vast and dispersed body of literature. Edited by Dallen J. Timothy, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Heritage Tourism, Tourism Planning is a four-volume collection of classic and contemporary contributions. It brings together material drawn from a plethora of journals, as well as pieces from key books and difficult-to-find sources.

With a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected materials in their historical and intellectual context, Tourism Planning is an essential work of reference and is sure to be welcomed by scholars, students, and practitioners as a vital one-stop resource.
