      Christopher Shakespeare the Marketing manager for the Geography area from Routledge is interested in hearing from academics 'who could potentially use, recommend or adopt [Understanding and Managing Tourism Impacts] for courses they run at their university in the UK or Rest of world. As it is much easier to broadcast this message than trawl through the internet wading through course outlines I have taken the liberty of forwarding this message.

      Book details are available at the Routledge website: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415771337/ but otherwise the summary is:

      This text provides a clear, accessible and up-to-date synthesis of tourism’s role in our contemporary world, both as an agent of change, and as a response to it. Tourism-related change is approached from a framework that illustrates the changing environments in which they occur, including the spatial scale of such impacts and the effects of these impacts over time. This framework is then applied to the economic, socio-cultural and physical dimensions of tourism. After examining the different forms of tourism-related impacts, the book then discusses the role of planning as part of an integrated approach to the mitigation of undesirable impacts and the maximization of the desirable benefits of tourism development. Case studies and illustrations from a variety of locations from around the world are used throughout the book to exemplify key themes and issues; additionally figures and tables serve to elucidate statistical data.
