Third World Tourism Research 1950-1984

A guide to literature

H. Leo Theuns

Since the early fifties tourism to developing countries has dramatically increased and in many a developing country it is now a sector of vital importance. This increase has been reflected in an equally impressive rate of growth in scholarly output. Despite this, there are as yet no indexed guides providing in a single volume easy access to the rapidly expanding body of knowledge. This bibliography seeks to fill the gap. It covers a period of 35 years and comprises more than 2000 titles in English, French, German and Dutch, on tourism in the Third World and in richer countries such as Greece, Yugoslavia, Portugal and Spain. The titles are chronologically arranged according to the year of publication, and for each year in alphabetical order. To assist readers the titles are catalogued by three indexes: an author and editor index, a geographical index and a subject index.
Contents: Subjects covered include a.o. economic impact, socio-cultural impact, sectoral planning and development, accommodation, air transport, church views, crime, pilgrimages, prostitution, monuments, education, employment, image, transnationals, and tourism and agriculture.
