"The Economic Geography of the Tourist Industry" examines whether tourism can be defined as an industry. Bridging the gap between tourism research and economic geography, the authors by bring together leading academics in geography, planning and tourism, to explain tourism's definitions. Providing detailed analyses of key sectors, such as tour operators, airlines and the hotel industry from a broad international perspective, and backed by a broad range of international studies, the book also explores issues such as business cycles, labor dynamics, entrepreneurship and the role of the state in tourism and concludes that the production of tourism-related services has characteristics commonly associated with "harder" production sectors, such manufacturing and producer services.
