This is a critical introduction to the relations between tourism, tourists, and tourism spaces. It fuses economic and cultural perspectives to explain how tourism is dependent on place and space, while at the same time as defining those places and spaces.

Examining different levels of scale - from local to global - Tourism and Tourism Spaces is informed by the discussion of three key processes:

- production and consumption of tourist spaces

- consumption and commodification of tourist experiences

- construction and reconstruction of tourist spaces

Each chapter engages with different theoretical perspectives; is illustrated with comparative examples and case studies; uses tables, boxes and figures throughout; and concludes with a summary.

An integrated and systematic review of a range of theoretical positions - that integrates economic and cultural - Tourism and Tourism Spaces will be a key resource for students of geography, sociology, management studies, hospitality studies, and leisure studies.
