Book Review: TOURISM, RECREATION AND REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT PERSPECTIVES FROM FRANCE AND ABROAD
This is an edited book that offers interesting insights into tourism development in France, the longstanding top destination for tourism worldwide. The focus here is on the rural regions, which shows that even in this most visited country, neither is the tourist entirely ubiquitous nor is tourism development a straight forward win win situation. It is a rare treat to have such a comprehensive overview in English about tourism development in various French regions. While there is robust scholarship and a vibrant tourism discourse going on in French, the non-French speaking part of the tourism world is not very well aware of it. Which is our loss as there is ample experience and quality research to learn from. So this book is very welcome and will be of interest to students of tourism, researchers and tourism developers.
