Reviews of the previous editions:
“Hall and Cooper’s work combines the complexity of the supply and demand of experiential mobility and presents, in sophisticated layers, the actors of the tourism system.” Annals of Tourism Research 45 (2014)

“… inviting, engaging, and giving. Cooper and Hall have successfully crafted a text that breaks down a challenging topic. It’s consistent structure and dynamic material make this book an accessible entrance into contemporary tourism.” Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change, 2013 Vol. II, No.3

The study of tourism and indeed the tourism industry is changing constantly. Now in its fourth edition, Contemporary Tourism: an international approach presents a new and refreshing approach to the study of tourism, considering issues such as overtourism, advances in AI and its impacts, waste management and environmental crisis, the sharing economy and Airbnb, the tourist experience and product development. In particular, it highlights the ongoing threats and opportunities faced by the tourism industry today, and discusses the related management strategies, illustrating the potential implications for the patterns and flow of tourism in the future. Divided into five sections, each chapter has a thorough learning structure including chapter objectives, examples, discussion points, self-review questions, checklists and case studies. URL links are heavily present throughout the text so that users of both hard and electronic formats can have direct links to up to date, authoritative and annotated sources of information. Cases are both thematic and destination-based and always international. They are used to emphasise the relationship between general principles and the practice of tourism looking at areas such as business and special interest tourism and the role of technology. The five sections cover: Contemporary Tourism Systems; The Contemporary Tourist; The Contemporary Tourist Destination; The Contemporary Tourism Industry; and Tourism Futures.

New to this edition:
  • New material on latest issues such as the international response to overtourism and environmental change; and the impact of AI/robotics on tourism human resources;
  • Brand new and updated case studies and readings throughout;
  • Substantial support for both students and teachers, both within the text itself and via web-based student and instructor resources.

By Chris Cooper, Professor in the School of Events, Tourism and Hospitality at Leeds Beckett University, UK and C. Michael Hall, Professor of Marketing at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand; Docent, University of Oulu, Finland and Visiting Professor at Linnaeus University, Kalmar, Sweden.
