Aims and Scope

The books in this Tourism Social Science Series (TSSSeries) are intended to systematically and cumulatively contribute to the formation, embodiment, and advancement of knowledge in the field of tourism.

The TSSSeries' multidisciplinary framework and treatment of tourism includes application of theoretical, methodological, and substantive contributions from such fields as anthropology, business administration, ecology, economics, geography, history, hospitality, leisure, planning, political science, psychology, recreation, religion, sociology, transportation, etc., but it significantly favors state-of-the-art presentations, works featuring new directions, and especially the cross-fertilization of perspectives beyond each of these singular fields.

While the development and production of this book series is fashioned after the successful model of Annals of Tourism Research, the TSSSeries further aspires to assure each theme a comprehensiveness possible only in book-length academic treatment. Each volume in the series is intended to deal with a particular aspect of this increasingly important subject,  thus to play a definitive role in enlarging and strengthening the foundation of knowledge in the field of tourism,  and consequently to expand its frontiers into the new research and scholarship horizons ahead.

Recent Volumes Include:

Volume 23. Social Conflict and Harmony: Tourism in China's Multi-ethnic Communities
Volume 22. Tourism Research Paradigms: Critical and Emergent Knowledge
Volume 21. Tourism Education: Global Issues and Trends
Volume 20. Tourism Research Frontiers: Beyond the Boundaries of Knowledge
