“… perfect for students starting their journey in sustainable tourism or the practitioner interested in the applied and theoretical mechanisms and issues of sustainable tourism concepts.

"Written in an engaging and story-like manner this book explains many elements of sustainable tourism and outlines key issues facing the industry. … there are many interesting and relevant global examples that both students and practitioners will be able to identify with and learn from.”
Rachel Dodds, Professor, Ted Rogers School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, Ryerson University, Canada.

“Alexandra Coghlan has written a clear, fresh, stimulating introduction to sustainable tourism. Full of relevant and current international examples, it is a pleasure to read.”
Xavier Font, Professor of Sustainability Marketing, School of Hospitality and Tourism Management, University of Surrey, UK

Using first-hand research projects and packed with international case studies, it combines theoretical and applied knowledge with a scaffolded learning approach and takes a comprehensive look at practical management tools, certifications and innovation as part of the process of operationalising and implementing sustainable tourism.

An Introduction to Sustainable Tourism provides a comprehensive, pragmatic, and realistic look at integrating sustainability into tourism. It adopts a systems-perspective, looking at the whole tourism supply chain to provide an integrated viewpoint of sustainability in the tourism industry and asks:

  • How does policy encourage or discourage sustainability?
  • How do intermediaries influence the sale of sustainable tourism?
  • What are the operator’s concerns, how do tourists themselves respond to them?
  • What are the values of sustainability in tourism and what are the impacts ‘trade-offs’ to the tourist experience?
