Description: This book provides critical in-depth reviews on key themes and issues in tourismresearch in China. These themes include: Chinese scholars’ epistemologicalviews of tourism, rural tourism development, community participation in tourism,tourist market and behaviour, tourist attraction management and tour guiding andinterpretation in China. While Chinese scholars are often able to access keyresearch in both English and Chinese, the majority of researchers from outsideChina without knowledge of the Chinese language are unable to read originalresearch from China.
