  • Sport, Leisure and Culture in the Postmodern Cityby Stephen Wagg; Peter Bramham

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The widespread concept of the 'postmodern city' is frequently linked to the decline of traditional manufacturing industries and a corresponding wane of white working-class culture. In place of these appear flexible working practices, a diversified workforce, and a greater emphasis on consumption, leisure, and tourism. Illustrated by an interdisciplinary... more...

    Popular music is a cultural form much rooted in space and place.

The book's editors have brought together... more...

  • Services and Economic Development in the Asia-Pacificby J.W. Harrington; P.W. Daniels

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Until the 1990s, industrialization was the dominant development paradigm for the Asia-Pacific region.

This rapid tertiary expansion is fundamentally restructuring... more...

  • Development Tourismby Rochelle Spencer

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Tourism in Cuba - described by Fidel Castro as 'the evil we have to have' - has been regarded both with ambivalence, and as a crucial aspect of development and poverty alleviation.
