Tourism Geography develops a critical understanding of how different geographies of tourism are created and maintained. Drawing on both historical and contemporary perspectives, the discussion connects tourism to key geographical concepts relating to globalization, mobility, new geographies of production and consumption, and post-industrial change. The new edition has been fully updated to have an international focus, with global case studies and broader based content. This book is the only up to date and comprehensive review of geographies of tourism and the ways in which geographers can interpret contemporary tourism processes. It provides an accessible yet thorough explanation of concepts and models which promotes an understanding of their applications and limitations.

Stephen Williams is Peabody Professor of North American Archaeology and Ethnography, Emeritus, and former Director of the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University.
