Pressestimmen"The editors are both lecturers in the University of Montana School of Forestry. The contributors are overwhelmingly North American, 21 of 26 being from Canada or the United States. The underlying theme of this book is that sustainable tourism needs to be considered in the context of sustainable economic development, while accepting that there is no single accepted definition of sustainable tourism. The editors acknowledge that one of the problems with discussing sustainable tourism is maintaining the illusion of being aware of the question when the reality is quite different. ... The articles in this book give a more than adequate picture of current views on sustainable tourism and recreation. As such, it should soon become an essential item on graduate reading lists."--John Street (MSc in Tourism, Conservation and Sustainable Development from Greenwich University)
