Even though tourism forms a vibrant and dynamic field of study, the history and development of it remains uncharted in any significant manner. The subject developed in response to a growing interest and recognition of the potential value of tourism to the economy, society, and culture, as well as environmental regeneration. In part, the evolution of the subject has arisen from the development of a critical interest among social scientists and more latterly business researchers.
There are no benchmarks on which scholars, researchers, and public sector agencies can gauge where the subject came from, what it has achieved, where it is going, and what it means for the public sector in establishing adequate planning and control measures.

This major reference collection, Tourism, brings together not only the seminal studies and articles that have shaped thinking in the tourism area, but also the structure of the collection synthesizes, organizes, and logically analyses a large number of issues to guide users through the manifold branches of this field.
