Agarwal (tourism management, U. of Plymouth, UK) and Shaw (retail and tourism management, U. of Exeter, UK) assemble 16 chapters that take a global perspective of coastal tourism resort management and related economic, socio-cultural, political, and environmental issues. The volume uses a thematic framework to examine coastal tourism resorts in a selected range of environments worldwide, aiming to advance conceptual understanding of resort evolution and change and bring to light a neglected area. They provide case studies in a variety of geographical regions and resorts in all stages of development in terms of those in transition, diversification and sustainable development, the pleasure periphery and managing the postmodern resort, variation and standardization in structures, and state intervention and planning and management. The book is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students in tourism. Contributors from around the world are scholars in the field and others, such as land of Israel studies and archaeology, management, geography, business, and environmental sciences.
