Sport Tourism Development free pdf The second edition provides an incisive, comprehensive examination of sport tourism, exploring the scope and diversity of the linkages between sport and tourism, and focusing on their manifestations in time and space. In presenting a critical discussion of theoretical and applied issues in sport tourism, the authors synthesize a wide range of literature into insightful perspectives of key dimensions of sport tourism development, using 'focus points' in each Chapter to illustrate real-world manifestations of the concepts and issues being discussed, with additional support provided by international case studies.

This incisive book has been written to address that need and to stimulate the curiosity of students, educators and practitioners alike.
