Topical, comprehensive, original and a gold mine of references. This book fills a major void in the tourism literature with chapters that provide a thoughtful analysis of tourist shopping as leisure, labour and recreation. The role of souvenirs, operation of venues and issues of management are explored in depth. It is essential reading for anyone interested in this central element of the tourism experience. .... Let me out of here and lead me to the bargains! * Bruce Prideaux, James Cook University * It is very helpful to have a well-informed text dedicated to this important dimension of tourism and the material is likely to be a useful starting point for subsequent studies. * Joan C. Henderson, Nanyang Business School, Singapore in Tourism Recreation Research 31: 2, 2006 * This is an exceptionally well-researched volume on a subject often dismissed by researchers and even marketers. It is a welcome addition to the literature on this important activity and should be of interest to a wide audience. Shopping Tourism, Retailing and Leisure is a short, well written book on a subject that is far more important than one might think. Dallen Timothy is to be congratulated for taking shopping out of the closet. * Nancy E. Chesworth, Mount St. Vincent University in Annals of Tourism Research 33:1 *
