‘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.
