Tourism Ethics

Decades of tourism research have allowed researchers to understand the myriad social, ecological, and economic impacts that are derived from tourism. We know the results of tourism, indeed we can predict them, but we still have trouble stemming the tides of such negative change. Unfortunately, the preoccupation with impacts research has pulled us far behind other disciplines which have progressed theoretically, conceptually and empirically through an interdisciplinary agenda that includes ethics. In addressing this shortfall, "Tourism Ethics" applies moral concepts and issues to some of the most vexing tourism dilemmas of the day, through an analysis of a wide variety of ethical systems and theories. In doing so, the book examines both historical and current moral research from disciplines such as biology, psychology, anthropology, and philosophy. The book concludes with the introduction of a conceptual framework which provides a foundation for further research, planning, and management of tourism.
