'In this volume Dr Clive Morley presents a series of papers designed to illustrate facets of managing organisations engaged in tourism. The book begins with Clive's thought provoking review of why tourist organisations pose specific, special concerns for management, and the state of the literature covering these issues. While all may not necessarily agree with the views expressed, the book is worth buying for almost this introduction alone as it demands a response from readers to clarify their own views about these issues. Dr Morley has also done readers a service in his selection of papers in that, while they have been published previously in leading journals, the volume places them all in one easily accessible collection that needs to be on the bookshelves of those concerned with organisations involved in tourism and their management.' -- Chris Ryan, Waikato Business School, New Zealand
