Tourism is an important economic factor. Besides its many benefits, there are, however, many potential dangers: emissions, environmental degradation, biodiversity loss, social imbalance, etc. The concept of sustainable tourism shows how tourism might be both, an important and promising economic factor as well as a sustainable lesure-time pursuit.

Eine Lösung des Problems könnte der nachhaltige Tourismus sein. Dessen Grundzüge werden in diesem englischsprachigen Lehrbuch vorgestellt und kritisch diskutiert.
