Book Description

The economic and sociocultural significance of tourism today cannot be overstated. With the rapid growth of travel and tourism, more and more research is being undertaken in this field, with particular attention paid to the concept of sustainability.

It considers the area broadly, and presents in-depth discussions on many relevant and important tourism issues, covering topics from the sustainable use of cultural heritage in tourism and the development of sustainable jobs and professionalism in the tourism sector to the aspects of systemic management and logistic planning for tourist destinations, as well as the contributions that local governments make towards sustainable development and use of local resources.
