New Book: The Economics of Tourism Destinations. Theory and Practice, 3th ed. Routledge.

Norbert Vanhove's book provides a succinct guide to the economic aspects of tourism for students and practitioners alike to decipher the methods of measurement of supply, demand, trends and impacts. Each chapter combines theory and practice and is integrated with international case studies. Combining macro and micro aspects of economics to the tourism destination, this is an invaluable resource for students learning about this subject and it is also aimed at tourism researchers and policy makers.
