'There is a considerable need for this text which effectively relates general environmental issues to the hospitality industry and which underpins theoretical discussion with case material, optimum performance figures and appropriate references. I am certain that this will be very well received by both lecturers, practitioners and students associated with the hospitality industry.' Stuart Jauncey, School of Hotel and Catering Management, Oxford Brookes University "Because of the wealth of information that it contains, I feel the book is also potentially of value as an operational handbook for hospitality managers....As the book stands, it establishes at long last a significant bridge-head bringing environmental subject knowledge into the hospitality curriculum." Progress in Tourism and Hospitality Research 'It [Environmental Management for Hotels] presents technical and operational aspects of the subject with the elegance and thoroughness that we have come to expect of Professor Kirk, providing first a discussion of environmental policy, followed by details of the main environmental management areas, notably water, waste and energy. Because of the wealth of information that it contains, I feel the book is also potentially of value as an operational handbook for hospitality managers. It must also be a significant resource for companies wishing to design and mount training courses to support environmental policies.' Progress in Tourism & Hospitality Research, November 1996
