Summary
Increased leisure time and changes in lifestyle and consumption have given renewed importance to tourism, leisure and recreation in both the developed and the developing world, and tourism has become one of the fast-growing industries in the world economy. This international, interdisciplinary series brings together innovative, contemporary research and practice in tourism, leisure and recreation studies. Urban Tourism focuses in particular on the challenges facing older industrial cities in promoting tourism, and the role of tourism in regenerating city centres and inner city areas. In many cities where the traditional economic activities have declined, city authorities have invested in tourism as a means of boosting the image of their city, revitalizing and physically regenerating it, and creating new jobs. The book describes and interprets this process in western Europe and North America. Tourism in other large cities is also covered
