About this book

Modern Advances in Tourism Research provides a thorough assessment of state-of-the-art academic research in this recent field of economic science. The authors start by scoping the scene of tourism research, evolving then to a comprehensive analysis of themes of particular interest for researchers and academics interested on the workings of the tourism markets, such as new analysis frameworks in tourism economics and new operational tools in tourism research. With a view to go beyond fundamental research, the book closes with a chapter dedicated to applied country and regional studies, where a variety of subjects – from input-output analysis to e-tourism competitiveness – are analysed from an alternative micro-perspective.
