Recensioner i media
I have enjoyed this book. It provides a useful compilation of the relevant literatures, augmented by informed commentary and often insightful suggestions. -- Julia N. Albrecht, University of Otago, New Zealand * Annals of Leisure Research, 2016 * The book is extremely well-written, extensively referenced in terms of both theory and practice, and provocative. The case studies present interesting examples of attempts at successful marketing sustainable tourism in a variety of national parks and highlight some of the real-world shortcomings and pitfalls of a relatively novel and innovative approach to reconciling the seemingly oppositional forces involved in attempting to bring together the goals of both national parks and tourism. -- Paul Frank Wilkinson, Emeritus, York University, Canada * Journal of Tourism Futures, 2018 * This book proposes a new approach to the marketing of National Parks, using concepts such as sustainable marketing, power relationships, cultural legitimacy, and demarketing. The book challenges readers and managers to think anew about visitor, community and park relationships. It provides a unique thrust for future park visitor management. * Paul F. J. Eagles, University of Waterloo, Canada * For those interested in marketing - making connections between people and their parks - this book dives deeper, uncovering philosophy, circumstance and practice in informative and often provocative ways thus challenging readers to think out of the box to design an effective marketing perspective and practice. * Stephen McCool, University of Montana, USA *
