Tourism Planning

Policies, Processes and Relationships

Second Edition

C. Michael Hall

The second edition of this highly-regarded text provides a fresh and stimulating introduction to tourism planning at global, regional and local levels. It stresses that planning is most effectively understood by conceptualising the wider context alongside examining the analysis and application of planning tools. Thematically underpinned by the need for sustainability, the author argues that tourism planning, policy, and development are best conducted by embracing the relational structure of governance as part of a more sophisticated and contextual approach.
