Beschreibung"Ecotourism and Sustainable Development "is the most comprehensive overview of worldwide ecotourism available today, showing how both the concept and the reality have evolved over more than twenty-five years. Here Martha Honey revisits six nations she profiled in the first edition--the Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica, Tanzania, Zanzibar, Kenya, and South Africa--and adds a fascinating new chapter on the United States. She examines the growth of ecotourism within each country's tourism strategy, its political system, and its changing economic policies. Her useful case studies highlight the economic and cultural impacts of expanding tourism on indigenous populations as well as on ecosystems.
PortraitMartha Honey is executive director of the Center on Ecotourism and Sustainable Development and author of Ecotourism and Certification: Setting Standards in Practice (Island Press, 2002).
