Statement of responsibility
edited by Laurence A.G. Moss
This book describes and analyses the challenges and opportunities of amenity migration to mountain areas and its management, and offers related recommendations. The book's chapters cover the subject through case studies at international, regional and local levels, along with overarching themes such as environmental sustainability and equity, mountain recreation users, housing, and spiritual motivation. Crucial issues addressed are the relationship of amenity migration to tourism and migration motivated by economic gain. Part I (chapters 1-3) describes and analyses key aspects of the amenity migration phenomenon that arch across specific place experiences, while chapters 4-20 are organized geographically, covering amenity migration in the Americas (part II), in Europe (part III), and in the Asia Pacific region (part IV). Chapter 21 concludes by bringing all the information together and focusing on the future of amenity-led migration. The book has a subject index
