This clear and engaging text introduces undergraduate students to the vast and diverse subject of tourism through the lens of geography. Indeed, geography and tourism have always been interconnected, and Velvet Nelson draws on human and physical geography to interpret all facets of tourism—economic, social, and environmental. She shows how geography provides the tools and concepts to consider both the positive and negative factors that affect tourists and destinations, as well as the effects tourism has on both peoples and places. Her thematic approach uses real-world case studies, based on research and on the experiences of tourists themselves, to vividly illustrate key issues. This comprehensive introduction will enhance students' understanding of geographic concepts and how they can be used as a way of viewing and understanding the world.
