Leading scholars summarize current thinking on the major topics in tourism economics. Each of 21 chapters follows a common format that addresses a particular topic's importance, outlines its main contributions/themes, reviews the existing literature, and suggests directions for future research. Some of the subjects covered include tourism demand forecasting; pricing principles for natural and cultural attractions; alliances in the airline industry; and public sector investment in tourism infrastructure. Editor Dwyer teaches at the U. of New South Wales, Australia, and Forsyth is a professor at Monash U.
