Manjula Chaudhary (Editor) K.K. Kamra (Editor) Ravi Bhushan Kumar (Editor) S.S. Boora (Editor) R.H. Taxak (Editor) Mohinder Chand (Editor)
Synopsis Tourism not only provides means of recreation and relaxation to the tourists but offers succour to the ailing and developing economies of the world. The entrepreneurs, communities and states find immense commercial opportunities in tourism and have made earnest efforts to reap the benefits. The net result is the generation of wealth to the tune of US$ 622.7 billion in 2004. But this wealth generation is not without a price. For the development of tourism, environment, societies and cultures at the destination has paid a heavy price. The present cause of concern is not only the development but to tackle the challenges posed by development. The present book Tourism Development, Impacts and Strategies  makes an in-depth study of the nature of developments, its impacts and comes out with a set of composite and holistic views for future development. The book carries articles--diverse in nature and content, that combine the theoretical issues and the pragmatic measures to deal with the situation.
