Many countries around the world rely on the tourism industry to support their economies, making the safety and protection of travelers and workers in the industry of paramount importance. However, few police departments around the world have special divisions dedicated to the protection of tourism, tourists, and tourist centers. Tourism-Oriented Policing and Protective Services is a collection of innovative research on new methods and strategies for ensuring the security and safety of tourists, while also allowing law enforcement to take an active role in aiding the economic development of their city. While highlighting topics including visitor protection, cultural tourism, and security services, this book is ideally designed for government officials, policymakers, law enforcement, professionals within the tourism industry, academicians, researchers, and students.

The third edition of Governance and Policy in Sport Organizations introduces readers to the power and politics of sport organizations. It explores the managerial activities essential to governance and policy development, and it looks at the structure and function of organizations like those with which readers will interact in the workplace. It also demonstrates where the power lies in an organization or industry segment and how individual sport organizations fit in to the greater industry. Current policy issues and the ethical questions they raise are also addressed. Real-world case studies demonstrate the types of dilemmas that sport managers face every day. In addition, professional administrators from a wide variety of sport organizations contribute their perspectives, giving readers a glimpse into the real concerns of sport professionals and the impact of governance and policy on their jobs. The book's practical foundations, readability, and logical organization all help readers to understand the big picture of the sport industry and their place in it as future sport managers. New to the third edition is a chapter on individual professional sport, which explores how this industry segment differs from professional sport leagues. In addition, contributions from Thierry Zintz, from the Universite catholique de Louvain, offer insights into European sport organizations.

The Travel Safety Handbook

The US travel industry reached $537 billion in 1987--a huge industry with little formal training material. Stutts (hotel administration, U. of Nevada, Las Vegas) has made a very useful contribution. He considers safety/security issues related to fire, theft, food sanitation, cruises, recreation, natural disasters, insurance and medical care, arguing that the competent travel agent will provide some guidance in these areas, that the traveller should inform himself about others.
