Calls for boycotts by tourists of countries with undesirable political regimes, the use of tourism to initiate political discussions, increased pressure for fair trade, and the use of tourism for economic transformation all reflect the huge impact that tourist activity and the tourism industry has on political change. Now in its second edition Tourism and Political Change addresses these issues of great current relevance and importance focussing on events and their impacts.
