Key Concepts in Theme Park Studies : Understanding Tourism and Leisure Spaces Hardback



This book offers a comprehensive, multidisciplinary introduction to theme parks and the field of theme park studies.

It identifies and discusses relevant economic, social, and cultural as well as medial, historical, and geographical aspects of theme parks worldwide, from the big international theme park chains to smaller, regional, family-operated parks.

By providing the necessary backgrounds, theories, and methods to analyze and understand theme parks both as a business field and as a socio-cultural phenomenon, this book will be a great resource to students, academics from all disciplines interested in theme parks, and professionals and policy-makers in the leisure and entertainment as well as the urban planning sector.
