The book therefore, should prove interesting to students of tourism in both undergraduate and post-graduate studies; to senior public officers responsible for strategy and policy-making in the tourism, sport and leisure sector as well being a useful guide for any non-government and professional organizations who need to understand the process for developing effective plans and policies that are both practical, effective, and sustainable."-- (01/01/2011)
