Safety and Security in Tourism Book Review:

How will the travel and tourism industry respond to the terrorist attacks on America? The recent terrorist attacks in the United States and their repercussions for the travel and leisure industries have focused more attention on tourism safety and security issues than ever before. The impact on tourism destinations and businesses, as well as on traveler behavior, will be significant. Recent events require further analysis not only of how travel safety may be improved but also how security issues may be seen in terms of tourism marketing and management so that the industry is able to better respond to such challenges. In this, an era of turbulent global relationships, the need for destination marketing organizations to demonstrate that they are safe for tourists has become increasingly important. Negative publicity, often unrelated to on-the-ground reality, may also serve to affect tourist perceptions. Safety and Security in Tourism: Relationships, Management, and Marketing examines: the effects of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the tourism industry and how the industry is responding the importance of safety as a factor in destination or activity choice case studies of destination and business responses to past political instability and/or attacks against tourists safety, security and destination image the role of the media in influencing consumer perceptions of travel safety consumer awareness of travel advisories and their influence on behavior the role of insurance in the travel industry consumer awareness and acceptance of security measures in travel and tourism safety and security as a component in destination marketing crisis and risk management in the tourism industry cross-border security and visa controls and their implications for tourism safety and security measures for tourists in different sectors and in airports Tourism has often been cited as a force for peace, yet tourism is typically one of the first industrial casualties of war and political unrest. This book examines tourism safety and security issues to give you a better knowledge base from which to respond to future events.

Peace through Tourism Book Review:

Peace through tourism refers to a body of analysis which suggests tourism may contribute to cross-cultural understanding, tolerance and even peace between communities and nations. What has been largely missing to date is a sustained critique of the potential and capacities of tourism to foster global peace. This timely volume fills this void, by providing a critical look at tourism in order to ascertain its potential as a social force to promote human rights, justice and peace. It presents an alternative characterisation of the possibilities for peace through tourism: embedding an understanding of the phenomenon in a deep grounding in multi-disciplinary perspectives and envisioning tourism in the context of human rights, social justice and ecological integrity. Such an approach engages the ambivalence and dichotomy of views held on peace tourism by relying on a pedagogy of peace. It integrates a range of perspectives from scholars from many disciplinary backgrounds, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), tourism industry operators and community, all united by an interest in critical approaches to understanding peace through tourism. Additionally diverse geo-political contexts are represented in this book from the USA, India, Japan, Israel, Palestine, Kenya, the Koreas, Indonesia, East Timor and Indigenous Australia. Written by leading academics, this groundbreaking book will provide students, researchers and academics a sustained critique of the potential and capacities of tourism to foster global peace.

Tourist Police for Tourism Security A Model Proposal for Police Organizations Book Review:

Turizmin ayrılmaz bir unsuru, bir ülkenin Seyahat ve Turizm endüstrisinin rekabet gücünü belirleyen kritik bir unsur olan, turistlerin emniyeti ve güvenliğidir. Bu nedenle, turistlerin emniyet ve güvenliği, dünyadaki tüm ülkeler için bir ulusal güvenlik meselesi olmalıdır. Turizm Polisinin sadece turistler için değil aynı zamanda turizm sektörü için de emniyet ve güvenliği sağlama, bu konuda onlara yardımcı olma ve koruma sağlama hususunda önemli olduğuna ve turizm polisinin destinasyanlar hakkında olumlu imaj oluşturmasına yardımcı olduğuna inanılmaktadır. Böylece, turizm polisliğine yapılan herhangi bir yatırımın, destinasyonların ve ülkelerin ekonomik geleceğine yatırım olacağı aşikardır. “Turizm Güvenliği İçin Turizm Polisi: Polis Teşkilatları İçin Bir Model Önerisi” adlı bu kitap, ülkeler/destinasyonlar açısından dünyanın en çok tercih edilen turizm destinasyonlarından biri olma hedefi ile turizm polisi sistemi ve turizmde emniyet ve güvenlik konularına dikkat çekmesi açısından önemlidir. Bu bağlamda bu kitap, turizm emniyeti ve güvenliğine genel bir bakış sunmakta ve farklı ülkelerdeki polis teşkilatları için bir turizm polisi modeli önermeye odaklanmaktadır. Son olarak, kitapta destinasyonlarda turizm polisinin geliştirilmesi ve iyileştirilmesi için bazı pratik öneriler öne sürülmüştür. Kitabın içeriğinin, turizm emniyeti ve güvenliği konularına daha fazla yoğunlaşan ülkeleri ve kanun koyucuları destekleyeceği ve destinasyonlara uygun turizm polisi sistemini ve turistlerin ve turizm endüstrisinin emniyet ve güvenliğini sağlamadaki etkisini daha fazla yoğunlaştırması umulmaktadır. “Herkes için Emin ve Güvenli Turizm” sloganıyla daha emniyetli ve güvenli bir turizm ortamı oluşturmak için farklı ülkelerdeki Ulusal / Yerel Yönetimler tarafından bu kitaptaki tavsiyelerin ciddi bir şekilde dikkate alınacağı ve kendi ülkelerinde turism polisi sistemi kurmada son derece faydalı olacağı içtenlikle ümit edilmektedir.

The Anthropology of Tourism Security Book Review:

"As a concept, tourism security has recently occupied a central position not only in tourism and hospitality fields but also in the social imaginary. The post-Westphalian nation states devote considerable energy and resources to fight against the radicalized groups but the fact is that terrorism still remains a big problem and is very hard to resolve. Unlike other past decades, today foreign tourists and journalists are targeted by these radical cells. In view of this, a book, which revolves around tourism security, is not only necessary but represents an unquestionable urgency. In this editorial project, the authors gather 9 seminal chapters which discuss-from different perspectives-the anthropological nature of tourism security as well as the next steps to follow in the years to come. Oscillating from ISIS and terrorism to climate change, without mentioning security on board of cruises or health issues, this book situates as a must-read work, which sheds light on the dichotomies between the needs of further security and the attractiveness of destinations"--

Safety and Security in Tourism Book Review:

Natural disasters, wars and conflicts, epidemics, and other major crises can devastate a tourism service or destination. Though there is extensive literature and research on preparation and coping with tourism crises, there is a gap in information on how to best market and recover from the destruction of caused to tourism businesses and destinations. This book fills the gap by comprehensively examining how to rebuild the market for a tourism service or destination after a catastrophe.

Risk and Safety Challenges for Religious Tourism and Events Book Review:

Travellers today face many challenges from risk and safety issues. Focusing in particular on risk and safety issues faced by visitors to holy sites, this book looks at the unique challenges raised, where annual religious festivals are commemorated with mass gatherings lasting for days and large crowds require detailed disaster management plans. Beginning with a general section on risk management, covering areas such as disaster management, terrorism, crime and security, the book then delves deeper into specific issues and challenges. It reviews important topics such as understanding the behaviour of crowds, how to perform a risk assessment for a sacred space, and travelling in what some would regard as an increasingly hostile world. Mitigating risk at mass gathering events and festivals is an area that still needs further research, but this book brings together current thought and provides a valuable reference for those studying religion, tourism and events, as well as event organizers, emergency and hospital services, and local authorities.
