​Richard Salomon geht mittels einer empirischen Untersuchung der Frage nach: „Welche strategischen Voraussetzungen führen zu Erfolg in strategischen Allianzen?“. Hierbei entwirft er ein Modell, das eine Vielzahl von Strategien, die zur Bildung einer strategischen Allianz relevant sind, prinzipiell ordnet und in eine dreischichtige Struktur überführt. Aus dem Schema dieses Modells leitet er fünf Hypothesen ab, welche zum einen die Schlüssigkeit des Modells und zum anderen die Erfolgswahrscheinlichkeiten resp.Voraussetzungen für das Gelingen strategischer Allianzen zeigen sollen. Damit kann über statistische Testverfahren wie c2-Unabhängigkeitstest, t-Test, lineare Mehrfachregression und ANOVA letztendlich untermauert werden, dass die dreischichtige Struktur eine stimmige inhärente Logik aufweist und für die praktische Anwendung in potenziellen strategischen Allianzen geeignet ist.

China has witnessed a dramatic development of tourism in urban context in the past thirty years, especially with its success in hosting the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and the Shanghai World Exposition in 2010.

Deriving largely from a special issue on "Urban Tourism Development and City Destination Marketing" (Journal of China Tourism Research), Urban Tourism in China presents the readers with a collection of nine independent research reports examining issues such as consumer behaviour in urban destinations, the social impact of tourism, destination image, leisure, regional collaboration, and heritage tourism in ancient towns. The investigations covered urban areas of different scales and diversified nature from major metropolises such as Beijing, and Guangzhou, to ancient towns like Lijiang and Pingyao. Readers who have interests of tourism research, business development, and in-depth understanding of urban life in China may find the book informative and interesting.
