              This collection of papers from Tourism Geographies emphasizes new and emerging research paradigms in the geographic study of tourism. The papers included in this collection follow one of two threads: explicitly supporting specific research frameworks, or implicitly presenting new... and emerging theoretical perspectives through empirical research on the geographical topics. These begin with three overview papers from themes that emerged from recent annual meetings of the Association of American Geographers, including evolutionary economic geography (EEG), political ecology and community resilience. Each of these theoretical and conceptual frameworks is leading to new explorations and insights in a wide variety of geographical and social science research, including tourism studies. These are followed by a series of papers that extend our knowledge and thinking on a range of key geographical topics, including development and underdevelopment (by Saarinen & Rogerson), sustainable tourism planning (by Torres-Delgado & Saarinen), encounters with the natural environment (by Hill), and the geography of place names (by Light), as well as economic geography and new technologies and their applications to spatial behavior research. The papers in this special issue are especially relevant to tourism scholars, and very much represent the types of perspectives that Tourism Geographies seek to promote. This book was published as a special issue of Tourism Geographies.

              Tourism Geography develops a critical understanding of how different geographies of tourism are created and maintained. Drawing on both historical and contemporary perspectives, the discussion connects tourism to key geographical concepts relating to globalization, mobility, new ...geographies of production and consumption, and post-industrial change. The new edition has been fully updated to have an international focus, with global case studies and broader based content. This book is the only up to date and comprehensive review of geographies of tourism and the ways in which geographers can interpret contemporary tourism processes. It provides an accessible yet thorough explanation of concepts and models which promotes an understanding of their applications and limitations.

              In a world increasingly faced with, and divided by, regional and global crises, resilience has emerged as a key concept with significant relevance for tourism. A paradigmatic shift is taking place in the long-term planning of tourism development, in which the prevailing focus on ...sustainability is being enhanced with the practical application of resilience planning. This book provides a critical appraisal of sustainability and resilience, and the relationship between the two. Contributions highlight the complexity of addressing social change with resilience planning in a range of tourism contexts, from islands to mountains, from urban to remote environments, and in a range of international settings. Case studies articulate how tourism is both an agent of social change and a victim of larger change processes, and provide important lessons on how to deal with increasingly unstable economic, social and environmental systems. This is the first book to specifically examine social change and sustainability in tourism through a resilience lens. This much-needed contribution to the literature will be a key resource for those working in tourism studies, tourism planning and management, social geography, and development studies, among others.

              Resilience lies at the core of understanding the adaptive capacity of people and places in complex social and environmental systems. Resilience theory has made significant contributions to our understanding of how the interacting systems of people and nature or social-ecological ...systems can best be managed to ensure a sustainable and resilient supply of the essential ecosystem services on which humanity depends. Despite this, tourism scholars have been slow to adopt resilience concepts, and the emergence of new frameworks and applications is pressing. Via a transnational lens, Understanding Tourism Resilience: Adapting to Environmental Change draws on original empirical and theoretical insights on how tourism communities and economies respond to environmental change from a resilience perspective. Contributions will highlight the complexity and gradations of environmental change encounters and resilience planning responses in a range of tourism contexts from coastal to mountain, and from urban to remote settings. Cases will emphasize both fast-change (natural disaster and disaster recovery) and slow-change (socio-cultural, economic and ecological) variables, and draw on research from a variety of contexts including Asia, Oceania, Latin America and North America. This timely and significant work will appeal to students and scholars alike working in tourism studies, tourism management, environmental geography, environmental sciences and development studies, among others.
