Book Title: The Tourism Area Life Cycle - Vols. 1 and 2

Author: Richard W. Butler

Book Description:

Butler's 1980 seminal article in the Canadian Geographer is the most cited journal article in tourism becasue it provided the first critical look into the dynamic and complex nature of tourism development. These two volumes compile specially commissioned papers by leading researhcers who review, test and extend Butler's original model. These books will surely become a preferred source for PSU faculty and students interested observing and theorizing the long-term impacts of tourism development.
