About this book

Geotourism is tourism surrounding geological attractions and destinations. This unique text uses a wealth of case studies to discuss the issues involved in the management and care of such attractions, covering topics such as sustainability, impacts and environmental issues. Geotourism: Sustainability, impacts and management leads the reader logically through the process, covering both the theories involved and the practicalities of managing such 'environmentally precious' attractions.

Dowling and Newsome have produced a basis for discussion and research, one which can probably be utilized by all the intended audience: academics, students, planners, industry and the likes. -Patrick T. Maher, Tourism Management, 2006
