'This book makes a significant shift in our understanding of innovation within the tourism industry. It does so by taking a wide ranging perspective which includes aspects of knowledge transfer, learning regions and cities along with policy and governance. I have no doubt that this will become a standard text for those wishing to understand the importance of innovations in tourism, in an economic and social context.' Professor Gareth Shaw, University of Exeter, UK 'This pioneering book truly fills a significant research gap. All academics, policy analysts, industry representatives or anyone else with strong interests in how tourism is affected by innovative practices but also how tourism itself shapes innovation strategies at various spatial levels will find it of interest. It can be counted as one of a handful of texts that have appeared in the last decade that demonstrate a significant intellectual leap in tourism studies.' Professor Dimitri Ioannides, Director of the European Tourism Research Institute (ETOUR), Mid-Sweden University, Sweden
