Islands are the most vulnerable and fragile of tourism destinations and will experience even more pressure as the combined impacts of economic, social and environmental change accelerate in the future. In order to understand the process of island tourism development, response to change and challenges and their journey to sustainability, this book provides insights and instruction on topics including social, cultural, environmental and economic aspects of island tourism. It contains essential information for policymakers, planners, researchers, managers and operators within the tourism industry.

"The book would be well-suited to being a text for a senior undergraduate or graduate course on tourism and would be a useful addition to any library interested in the topic. It would also make valuable reading for both private and public sector decision-makers."-- (01/01/2012)
