Első borító

Liverpool University Press, 1994 - 199 oldal
This interdisciplinary volume brings together sixteen original papers on the development of tourism in Ireland, and especially its cultural and environmental implications, since the 1970s. Contributions discussing the wider context of Irish tourism development are complemented by regional and local level case studies, and by a number of essays discussing policy options for the future. Proceeding from a critique of current policy and practice, the contributions emphasise the concept of 'sustainable tourism', especially in the context of economically and geographically peripheral regions.
