This ground-breaking volume on the relationships between tourism and innovation provides an overview of relevant innovation theories and related literatures on entrepreneurship, productivity, regional development and competitiveness, and their significance to contemporary tourism practices. Innovation is a key concept in business and entrepreneurial studies and the broader social sciences. Yet, despite its policy and academic importance, historically little attention has been given to the role of innovation in tourism and the corresponding contribution of tourism-related human mobility to regional, firm, and product innovation. This book emphasises that innovation in tourism is much more than a series of technological innovations, as important as they are, and instead needs to be understood in an economic, social, and political context, with particular stress being placed on the extent to which innovations are shaped by the framework of governance and regulation, as well as by institutional factors and activities of individual actors and entrepreneurs. It is structured so as to introduce the reader to the overall significance of innovation at various levels and the role that innovation plays in firm and place competition. Supported with case studies throughout, this book is essential reading for all tourism students.

'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
