Handbook of Globalisation and Tourism

Edited by Dallen J. Timothy

Globalization entails the world becoming a smaller place through political, socio-cultural and economic processes. These processes have salient implications for tourism, and tourism itself is one of the driving forces behind globalization. This book is a collection of conceptual treatises by international scholars about the dynamics and reach of globalization and its relationships with tourism. It anatomizes and deconstructs the global forces, processes and challenges that face the world of tourism. It is international in scope, encyclopedic in its conceptual depth, empirically evocative, and contemporary in its coverage.

Chapter 27: Last chance tourism: a decade in review

Harvey Lemelin and Paul Whipp


By featuring various works on last chance tourism, the authors depict the evolution of last chance tourism from 2010 to 2018. These two time periods have been selected because 2010-2014 represents the early years of last chance tourism, while 2015 to 2018 represents the evolution and subsequent diversification of last chance tourism from the polar norths to other areas of the globe, throughout the decade. The conclusion suggest that although studies on last chance tourism have evolved, the original tensions between the promotion of this particular activity, and the subsequent benefits derived from this type of tourism, continue.
