In this timely new collection of essays, an excellent roster of contributors bring new insight to a wide spectrum of topics related to tourism in frontier areas.

The contributors highlight the potential, as well as the environmental, economic, bureaucratic, and cultural difficulties of peripheral tourism. This innovative and thought-provoking approach – with its wealth of detail – makes Tourism in Frontier Areas essential reading for scholars in tourist development, regional development, and economic geography.
