Tourism and Earthquakes, Paperback / softback Book

Tourism and Earthquakes Paperback / softback

Edited by C. Michael Hall, Girish Prayag

Part of the Aspects of Tourism series

This book offers a comprehensive overview of the relationship between tourism and earthquakes through all stages of a disaster.

It discusses the measures available to manage tourism after earthquakes and examines the means to mitigate the potential impacts of earthquakes on tourism.

The chapters address important questions such as 'are tourists who come to earthquake regions immediately after an earthquake a benefit or a burden for recovery?' and 'should priority be given to evacuate tourists after an earthquake hits?'.

The volume provides insights into the ethical, commercial and socioeconomic issues facing tourism after a major earthquake.

It will be useful to students and researchers in tourism studies, tourism planning and marketing, natural hazards, and destination and disaster management.
