This book systematically sets out the main types of frameworks that have been used in tourism research, examining their distinguishing features and how they are used, and illustrating these with specific examples. In this way, the book seeks to assist researchers to become more conscious of the range of frameworks available and be more aware of the opportunities for using them; to foster a critical appreciation of appropriate frameworks, both in their own work and the work of others; and to develop and/or apply frameworks more effectively and thereby enhance the quality of their research and the way in which it is communicated. The book has 10 chapters, an author index, and a subject index.

This book provides critical in-depth reviews on key themes and issues in tourism research in China. These themes include: Chinese scholars’ epistemological views of tourism, rural tourism development, community participation in tourism, tourist market and behaviour, tourist attraction management and tour guiding and interpretation in China. While Chinese scholars are often able to access key research in both English and Chinese, the majority of researchers from outside China without knowledge of the Chinese language are unable to read original research from China. This book seeks to redress this knowledge imbalance and bring key Chinese tourism research to the international tourism academic community. This book will be a valuable reference for tourism researchers, postgraduate students and industry professionals.
