Tourism has been identified as one of the few potential growth sectors in mature economies. This up-to-date volume provides a detailed study of the industry and of its contribution to economic development in Western Europe, offering a wide range of examples of the potential and limitations of tourism as a vehicle for development, and of government policies for tourism. Together, the general review chapters and the 11 country case studies, provide a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of tourism in Western Europe. The case studies are modelled on similar formats and cover changes in domestic and foreign tourism, seasonal and regional concentration, the economic implications of tourism development, and tourism policies.
