- Bruce Prideaux, Professor of Tourism Management and Marketing, James Cook University, Australia
Destination management and resort development and planning are strong core areas in the final year of most undergraduate degrees and a popular area of study at postgraduate level.
Using original case studies based on the author's own research, Resort Destinations: evolution, management and development uses examples from Australia's Gold Coast, Britain's Brighton, USA's Las Vegas, as well as Hong Kong, New Zealand and the Caribbean.
Primary: Final year undergraduate and postgraduate students of tourism/geography/social study-related courses. (HESA statistics for 1999 calculated a total of 18,928 students on such degree courses.) Also undergraduate and postgraduate students on commercial recreation programmes (US mainly).
