dc.description.abstractThese two books take very different approaches to a similar set of topics, providing a study in academic contrasts. Prideaux’s edited volume does not say it is about ecotourism, but in practice it is. Fletcher’s monograph says it is about ecotourism, but in practice it isn’t. Prideaux’s book is a solid collection of well-documented cases presented in a straightforward and comprehensive way, providing a reference work that readers can use as a baseline for the future. The 21 chapters comprise contributions from 32 authors, most from Australia and the UK, but also from Canada, Chile, France, Japan, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Qatar, Thailand and Uganda, presenting case studies from 12 countries including Australia, Madagascar, Peru, Brazil, Guatemala, Jamaica, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Guyana, Malaysia, Uganda and Indonesia. Tropical, subtropical and cool temperate rainforests are all included, though none are covered in a geographically comprehensive way. The sites and issues addressed are summarized in an introductory table (pp.23–25).en_US
