This book can only be described as a must use text for heritage studies.

      Cultural heritage is one of the most pervasive tourism resources in the world. Most trips away from home involve some element of culture, and heritage tourism continues to grow each year. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the issues, practices, current debates, concepts, and managerial concerns associated with cultural heritage-based tourism.
