Second homes have become an increasingly important component of both tourism and housing studies. They can directly and indirectly contribute a significant number of domestic and international visitors to destinations and may be part of longer-term retirement, lifestyle and amenity migration that can have significant economic and social effects on communities and destination development.

This volume offers an overview of different disciplinary and methodological approaches to second homes while simultaneously providing a broad geographical reach. Divided into four parts exploring governance, development, community and mobile second homes, the book provides a contemporary account of the major issues in an area of growing international interest.

This timely handbook covers a wide range of dimensions – from planning to the role of second homes in development and the management of their impact. The international and cross-disciplinary nature of the contributions will be of interest to numerous academic fields in the social sciences, as well as urban and regional planners.

In The Press

‘Coppock’s 1977 volume was the seminal academic contribution which established second homes as a research focus. Its role was overtaken by Hall and Müller’s Tourism, Mobility and Second Homes: Between Elite Landscape and Common Ground in 2004. The Routledge Handbook of Second Homes now assume this leadership role and takes the discourse further by providing a comprehensive overview second homes and provocative insights from leading scholars into this phenomenon.’ - Gustav Visser, Stellenbosch University, South Africa 

‘Drawing together an array of contributions from numerous international contexts, this edited collection reminds us of how the practice of second home tourism continues to be an important phenomenon in regions throughout the world. In critically reviewing recent developments from a range of diverse perspectives, the authors have made a very important contribution to the literature.’ - Bernadette Quinn, Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland.
