About this book

In recent years issues such as ethics, tourist safety, human rights, ethnocentrism, cultural sensitivity, behaviour codes, green consumerism, and the perceptions of 'sustainability' have become increasingly important in tourism studies. This book focuses on the concepts of welfare and well-being in tourism and provides an explanation, definition and a critique of welfare within tourism studies. Subjects covered include the welfare of tourists, employees in the tourism industry, residents in tourism destinations, animals as tourist attractions and the natural environment.
