About this book

Developing countries are increasingly reliant on tourism to generate income. To do this successfully it is critical for them to have an understanding of the tourist phenomenon. This book provides a clear overview of `West-South' tourism, reviewing and evaluating both theoretical perspectives as well as empirical studies of organized tours, backpackers, independent tourists and volunteer tourism. It concludes by outlining how developing countries can plan to attract the right kind of tourists.
