"Henderson has done a masterful job in outlining the various forms of tourism crises and presenting useful ideas and concepts in dealing with these crises. Both professionals and students of tourism science will find this book to be not only useful but a major edition to their tourism library. Anyone who is a practitioner of tourism or interested in the field as an academic subject would be wise to study this book carefully."-- Dr. Peter Tarlow, President, Tourism & More "Tourism Crises by Professor Joan Henderson is the first book that deals with tourism crises using a multidimensional approach. It covers all the main domains of tourism crises in a highly professional and comprehensive manner. This book is an excellent blend of tourism crisis theory and practice. Moreover, each chapter includes learning objectives, concept definitions, and review questions, which makes it a highly useful and, therefore, recommended book for students and practitioners alike." -- Dr. Yoel Mansfeld, Head, Center for Tourism, Pilgrimage & Recreation Research, University of Haifa, Israel.
