These two volumes are a rich repository of tourism knowledge.  The editors have assembled a stellar cast of experts in the field to write state-of-the-art chapters on both traditional and cutting edge topics in tourism management.  The volumes will be important resources for researchers and students in the future, as they seek to help tourism find its place in this ever changing world.

Professor Pauline Sheldon

The two volume SAGE Handbook of Tourism Management is an ambitious and monumental contribution to the practices and applications of tourism scholarship. The impact of tourism on the planet, on business and on humanity are accelerating. Hence, it is timely to undertake a systematic analysis of the best knowledge about the field through the eyes of leading scholars. The Handbook starts with fundamental theories, concepts, methods and disciplinary perspectives, and proceeds to the most recent developments and thinking. I particularly welcome the equal attention that the two-volume format gives to theories and applications.
