Additional Book Details

Tourism as an industry is constantly changing: Trends and attitudes are frequently susceptible to changes in what people look for in a holiday, which can change with economic context, generational shifts or the political landscape. In The Business of Tourism, Chris Holloway and Claire Humphreys help students to not only understand these new changes but to study them with a critical mindset.


An essential text for students of tourism management or travel & tourism, its historical context is combined with background theory and research, plus up-to-date international case studies, to examine in detail the tourism product alongside its impacts and the nature of a tourist. 


This classic book has constantly offered a well-rounded yet hands-on business view of the tourism industry, and this updated edition is no exception, providing:

Depth and breadth of coverage makes it a ‘one stop shop’ for students looking to purchase just one textbook during their degree
A focus on ‘business’ and the operational aspects of tourism give the text an applied feel rather than a descriptive overview, making it useful for any student wishing to work or take a placement in one of the many diverse sectors of the tourism industry
History chapter that is not included in other texts, which gives a stimulating historical perspective to students for whom an understanding of the development of the tourism industry through the ages is desirable for success in assessments
