This is a specialised book primarily aimed at tourism policymakers at national and local
level. The book covers an in-depth analysis of reasons for and consequences of
competitive behaviour and strategy formulation in various tourism settings from an
oligopolistic viewpoint. Tourism oligopoly is when few firms compete against each other
to serve mainly mass leisure and business tourism markets. Even if you are not that
interested in economics you may still find some of the chapters in the book an interesting
read. This book might also be useful as an additional source for modules in strategic
tourism management or tourism environmental analysis.
