Exploring the Use and Impact of Travel Guidebooks

Author: Victoria Peel
Publisher: Channel View Publications
ISBN: 9781845415655
Release Date: 2016-02-04
Genre: Business & Economics

This volume provides the first comprehensive examination of travel guidebooks and their conceptualisation, use and impact. Guidebooks have been key tourism paraphernalia for almost two centuries and although researched in some areas, academic knowledge on guidebooks in tourism has not been expansively communicated. The uncritical, unreflective and largely pejorative approach to guidebooks in the public sphere, and to some degree also present in academia, is reassessed in this book. This challenges the current limited tourism research approaches to the topic, including the routinely held assumption that the internet has all but destroyed the printed guidebook. This book will be a useful resource for postgraduate students and researchers in tourism and tourism communications and consumption.

Origins of a new economic union 7th 12th centuries Preliminary results of the nEU Med project October 2015 March 2017

Genre: Business & Economics

The nEU-Med project is part of the Horizon 2020 programme, in the ERC Advanced project category. It began in October 2015 and will be concluded in October 2020. The University of Siena is the host institution of the project. The project is focussed upon two Tuscan riverine corridors leading from the Gulf of Follonica in the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Colline Metallifere. It aims to document and analyze the form and timeframe of economic growth in this part of the Mediterranean, which took place between the 7th and the 12thc. Central to this is an understanding of the processes of change in human settlements, in the natural and farming landscapes in relation to the exploitation of resources, and in the implementation of differing political strategies. This volume brings together the research presented at the first nEUMed workshop, held in Siena on 11-12 April, 2017. The aim of the workshop was to draw up an initial survey of research and related work on the project, one and a half years after its inception. The project is composed of several research units. Each unit covers an aspect of the interdisciplinary research underpinning the nEU-Med project, each with their own methodology. For this first volume of results, it was decided not to give an account of all the work carried out within all the units, but to select those lines of investigation which, at the end of the first year and a half, have made it possible to articulate and develop an interdisciplinary research strategy.

Author: Stephen Brewer

Genre: Aegean Islands (Greece and Turkey)

The recent economic crisis in Greece has, paradoxically enough, created better travel conditions for tourism. The Greeks are painfully aware that tourism is their best-functioning remaining industry. They value the visitor as never before, treat them with a warmth and courtesy that exceeds what you{u2019}ll find in other parts of Europe. And more people are therefore coming here in unprecedented numbers. Includes information on the historic sights of Athens and the adjoining Peloponnese, as well as the recreational resorts and life of the enchanting Greek islands.

Such names as Geneva, Zurich, Lucerne, Basel, Mont Blanc, Zermatt, set travelers to dreaming; and for them, our Shortcut Guide to Switzerland will prove a much-appreciated source of valuable information.
