Tourism Management Marketing and Development

Lonely Planet (2013), Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2014-top 10 Countries, Available at: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/travel-tips-and-articles/lonely-planets-best-in-travel-2014top-10-countries (Accessed January 15, 2014).

Tourism Management  Marketing  and Development

Companies and destinations in the tourism sector are confronted with increasing managerial challenges and have to deal with a competitive, turbulent, and fast-changing environment. The understanding that both tourism companies and destinations endowed with the best assets (natural and cultural) cannot survive the escalating international competition without good managerial practices, has provided significant momentum for the development of the disciplinary field of tourism management in the last three decades. This volume recognizes the relevance of travel, tourism, and tourism activities as major economic drivers in the contemporary global economy, with a specific focus on performance, strategies, and sustainability. It is the collective intellectual effort of a number of international scholars, who cultivate original research on tourism management from a variety of theoretical perspectives. Together, they outline the importance for tourism companies and destinations to achieve and maintain a sustained competitive advantage by embracing sustainability and a Triple Bottom Line (TBL) approach to performance.

Changes in Contemporary Ireland

This volume explores the cultural, literary, theatrical, and political changes in Irish society from 1980. The so-called ‘Celtic Tiger’ brought about cultural and economic rejuvenation in Ireland but this new found confidence and prosperity was destabilised by other events, such as the scandals in the Catholic Church, bringing into question the role of traditional institutions in contemporary Irish life. The ending of the Troubles and signing of the Good Friday Agreement similarly heralded a new era in terms of positive political change, but recent paramilitary activity threatens to undermine the progress made in the 1990s, as waves of new violence hit the North. Equally, recent economic recession has halted the radical growth seen in the Republic over recent decades. This book therefore problematises the concept of change and progress by juxtaposing these events, and asking what real changes can be traced in modern Ireland. The contributors frequently reflect on the changes and upheavals this period of dramatic economic, political and cultural change has prompted. The volume includes contributions from the fields of politics, cultural studies, sport, history, geography, media and film studies, and theatre and literature. As such it is a decidedly interdisciplinary study, exploring wide-ranging topics and issues relevant to contemporary Irish Studies.

Tourism Resilience and Adaptation to Environmental Change

Atkinson, B., Baxter, S., Ver Berkmoes, R. & Bindloss, J. (2012) Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2013: The Best Trends, Destinations, Journey and Experiences for the upcoming Year. Melbourne: Lonely Planet Berkes, Fikret & Helen Ross ...

Tourism Resilience and Adaptation to Environmental Change

In recent years, resilience theory has come to occupy the core of our understanding and management of the adaptive capacity of people and places in complex social and environmental systems. Despite this, tourism scholars have been slow to adopt resilience concepts, at a time when the emergence of new frameworks and applications is pressing. Drawing on original empirical and theoretical insights in resilience thinking, this book explores how tourism communities and economies respond to environmental changes, both fast (natural hazard disasters) and slow (incremental shifts). It explores how tourism places adapt, change, and sometimes transform (or not) in relation to their environmental context, with an awareness of intersection with societal dynamics and links to political, economic and social drivers of change. Contributions draw on empirical research conducted in a range of international settings, including indigenous communities, to explore the complexity and gradations of environmental change encounters and resilience planning responses in a range of tourism contexts. As the first book to specifically focus on environmental change from a resilience perspective, this timely and original work makes a critical contribution to tourism studies, tourism management and environmental geography, as well as environmental sciences and development studies.

The New Biological Economy

For over a century, New Zealand has built its economy through a series of commodity-based booms – from wood and wool to beef and butter. Now the country faces new challenges. By doubling down on dairy farms, aren’t New Zealanders destroying the clean rivers and natural reputation upon which the country’s primary exports (and tourism) are based? And in a world where value is increasingly rooted in capital- and technology-intensive industries, can countries dependent on agriculture like New Zealand really sustain its high living standards by growing crops? This book takes readers out on to farms, orchards and vineyards, and inside the offices and factories of processors and exporters, to show how innovative New Zealanders are answering these challenges by building The New Biological Economy. From Icebreaker clothing to Mr Apple fruit exports, from milk and merino wool to wine and tourism, from high-end Berlin restaurants to the shelves of Sainsbury’s, innovative companies are creating high-value, unique products, rooted in particular places, and making pathways to the niche markets where they can realise that value. The New Biological Economy poses key questions. Do dairy and tourism have a sustainable future? Can the primary industries keep growing without destroying the natural world? Does the future of New Zealand lie in high tech or in the innovations of a land-based economy?
