About this book

Looking ahead to the 21st century, Sustainable Tourism explains the current thinking process that underlies the emerging international principles of more sustainable development in travel and tourism.

Using international illustrations it draws on experience and good practice as they are being increasingly applied around the world in the late 1990s. In sharp contrast to the problem analysis approach adopted by so many authors to this subject, Sustainable Tourism is focused on the pro-active role the private sector industry can play in partnership with the public sector to achieve solutions through its day-to-day operations and marketing, expecially in product enhancement and quality controls.

Media reviews

"Sustainable Tourism deals with a subject which is of critical importance to the public and private sector practitioners in the tourism industry [...] This book cuts through the emotional rhetoric [of tourism sustainability] and explains simply how good environmental practice is excellent business both for the marketplace and for the destination. I feel privileged to recommend it."
– Jean S. Holder, Secretary General, Caribbean Tourism Organization

"The great value of this book is not only that it clearly demonstrates that [sustainable tourism] is a feasible goal through marketing, but that it also presents growing evidence of environmental best practice standards already being set by the industry. That in the process it also lays to rest some myths and misconceptions about tourism is an additional bonus for the reader."
– John Yacoumis, Project Manager, South Asia Tourism Secretariat

"I recommend this important new book to practitioners as well as students, and commend its authors for their contribution to a better understanding of environmental impacts and the new partnership delivery mechanisms that are needed."
– from the foreword by Robert Collier, Vice-Chairman, Saison Overseas Holdings B.V.

"I found Sustainable Tourism: A Marketing Perspective an impressive work. It is far superior to any other treatments of the issues and more practical too. Everyone talks about sustainable tourism development, but this is the first book to apply the power of marketing to achieve it. It shows, through principles, analyses and case studies, how tourism can grow while destinations maintain, and even regenerate, (the environments) required to support it."
– Douglas C. Frechtling, Associate Professor of Tourism Studies, The George Washington University, USA

"This book is timely and to the point. Middleton and Hawkins clearly document the 'environment and development' characteristics of an industry generating more than 10% of global economic activity, as well as the emerging interest of the market in 'Green Tourism' which will bring a sharp new focus to public and private sector initiatives in this field. It's a valuable guide for anyone committed to sustainable growth."
– Geoffrey H. Lipman, President, World Travel & Tourism Council

"This is a stimulating book which develops new thinking. It adopts a distinctive stance with which some readers will disagree. It is likely to create much useful debate among its intended readership of students, researchers and industry practitioners."
– Dr Bill Bramwell, FTS, Tourism Society Journal

"The book is an insightful contribution to the topic of sustainability [...] the reader is provided with a readily accessible, rich source of cutting-edge information"
– Journal of Vacation Marketing
