Family Tourism : Multidisciplinary Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Heike Schanzel, Ian Yeoman, Elisa Backer
Part of the Aspects of Tourism series
The family remains at the emotional heart of society, and makes up a significant proportion of the tourism market.
However, the concept of family has changed over the decades and there are now different types of families that have their own unique attributes and needs.
Families may have one parent or two, who may or may not be of different genders.
This cutting-edge book constructs a multidisciplinary perspective on family tourism by discussing various types of families; how parents and children influence travel behaviours now and in the future and how family holidays may also be linked to stress.
Family Tourism: Multidisciplinary Perspectives provides a compilation of issues from academic writers around the globe, to provide a range of perspectives linked by a common theme of family tourism with a futures perspective.
