This new textbook provides a comprehensive overview of sustainable tourism framed around the UN’s sustainable development goals. It examines the origins and dimensions of sustainable tourism and offers a detailed account of sustainable initiatives and management across destinations, the tourism industry, public sector and leading agencies. The book explores the principal values and priorities in sustainable development through a better understanding of values, ethics and human nature. It covers a broad range of studies from an array of disciplinary perspectives and includes learning objectives, discussion questions and international case studies throughout. It is an important text for students and researchers in tourism and sustainability.


This book will surely become the standard text on sustainable tourism and remain so for a long time. It is well written and closely argued, very well referenced, and includes clear and highly relevant examples. The authors do much more than touch all the bases, they explore them in depth, and not only discuss what could be done, but how and why such actions need to be taken.
