Dear all,

I am very pleased to announce that the *Encyclopedia of Sustainable Tourism*
has now been published by CABI.

Edited by Carl I. Cater, Brian Garrod and Tiffany Low, this is a comprehensive
one stop shop for anyone researching any aspect of sustainable tourism.

Tourism impacts globally upon ecology, economies, peoples, cultures and the
built environment, so development must be sustainable to preserve the
environment and culture it exploits. Taking an interdisciplinary
perspective, this volume presents a comprehensive synthesis of the diverse
considerations, language and terms particular to sustainable tourism.

Written by a global team of academics and practitioners to reflect
sustainable tourism from a truly worldwide perspective, this book includes
entries covering all aspects of sustainability and tourism, helpfully
categorised into; ‘Types’ of tourism; common ‘Terms’; important
‘Organizations’ and ‘Awards’; key ‘Treaties’ and ‘Schemes’; as well as
‘Technical’ aspects of sustainable tourism development. It presents
detailed cross referencing between entries; suggestions for further reading
and relevant websites; and is fully referenced with an extensive
bibliography. It features a foreword from the Chair of the Global
Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and over 180 illustrations.

Throughout the encyclopedia, terms are clearly explained by the originators
of the concepts or key thinkers, augmented by contemporary perspectives
from emerging scholars. A comprehensive resource for anyone wanting to gain
a broad understanding of sustainable tourism, it may be used as both a
handy reference for definitions as well as a valuable reader for key
