This book explores and challenges the relationship between tourism and development and establishes a conceptual link between the discrete yet interconnected disciplines of tourism studies and development studies. This revised and expanded second edition provides not only a comprehensive theoretical foundation in development studies but also a critical analysis of contemporary themes and issues relevant to the study of tourism and its potential contribution to development. The second edition contains new chapters on the following topics: * Tourism and Poverty Reduction * Cultural Heritage, Tourism and Socio-economic Development * Tourism, Climate Change and Development * Human Rights Issues in Tourism Development * Tourism, Development and International Studies
