Professor Dallen Timothy is one of the world's most eminent scholars in the field of cultural heritage tourism. Using an articulate but accessible style, he covers a comprehensive range of pertinent themes from the basics of heritage management to complex issues of authenticity and the interpretation of the contested past. This book provides invaluable material for Cultural Tourism and Heritage Management courses at all levels. * Melanie Kay Smith, Budapest Metropolitan University, Hungary * This thought-provoking, comprehensive book, written by 'unashamedly, a self-proclaimed heritage fanatic' will assist students, scholars and practitioners to understand, conceptualize and effectively and responsibly manage cultural heritage. Those interested in participating in the academic discussion about cultural heritage tourism, recognizing it as a complex multidimensional phenomenon, must read this clear, well-structured and readable book. * Yaniv Poria, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel * Dallen Timothy's second edition of Cultural Heritage and Tourism is a must-read book on heritage, given the accessible style and breadth and depth with which the topic is dealt. The book is an up-to-date synthesis of key thinking on this area, written by an acknowledged expert on heritage tourism. * Stephen J. Page, University of Hertfordshire, UK *
