This book focuses on the demand, supply, key features and events that take place across the regions of Canada, the United States of America and Mexico. The diversity of socio-cultural, natural, and economic features within and between regions has situated all three regions in positions of prominence on the World Tourism Organizationís list of top international destinations.


True to its title, North America: A Tourism Handbook, serves its readers as a clear reference handbook providing a compendium of data from numerous sources.

The handbook is a fine contribution to the literature. Potentially, the Handbook may serve an onward purpose, stimulating research in topics mentioned superficially here as well as serving as a baseline study for future revisions.
