Tourism System: a set of interrelated parts working together toward shared outcomes and goals.

The Tourism System, under the guidance of a new authoring team, have made this new 8th edition more global in scope through examples, cases, and approximately 120 Quick Trips.

The Tourism System:

has been revised with learners in mind; it is written in a much more student-friendly tone.
is visually appealing - the improved illustration program includes several new contributions from the authors themselves.
features expanded and enhanced Quick Trips illustrating important practical issues, applications of management concepts, or significant trends in tourism that engage the reader and stimulate class discussion.
includes new Quick Trips that have been more closely integrated with the contents of each chapter.
The Tourism System includes 17 chapters, divided among four part topics:

Destination – chapters 1-6 better represent the new realities of destination management and give a greater emphasis on sustainable tourism and visitor experiences.
