Tourism has brought added value, prosperity and cosmopolitanism to the most remote areas and thus prevented emigration. On the other hand, there are negative effects such as crowds of people, major environmental interventions and rising land prices. Tourist hotspots suffer from the onslaught of visitors, while other places are left behind.
Eight richly illustrated chapters deal with key aspects of tourism in the 21st century: Mobility; urban and rural destinations; the relationship with agriculture; the privatisation of natural beauty; issues of tourism planning; the changing structure of accommodation and the interactions between climate change and tourism. Above all, however, the publication looks for potential for transformation. Local and international examples present pioneering solutions. Numerous successful examples whet the appetite for a type of holiday that is no longer exclusively based on consumption and the growth paradigm.
