The Contemporary Tourism Reviews series is designed for students who need support in the production of their assignments, dissertations and theses by providing state of the art reviews of sub fields of tourism. It is also an essential reference for academics who will expect to be kept abreast of disciplinary areas outside of their own specific domains of expertise for both research and teaching purposes.
