Tourism in European microstates and dependencies: geopolitics, scale and resource limitations.

Book cover for Tourism in European microstates and dependencies: geopolitics, scale and resource limitations.

Description

This book is about tourism and its multidimensional relationships with some aspects of state geopolitics as manifested on the ground in mini microstates and other anomalous territories in Europe. Chapters 1 and 2 provide conceptual grounding for studying irregular territories and microstates and supranationalism in Europe. Chapters 3-7 look specifically at the five mini states (mini microstates) in Europe from a historical, geographical and socio-economic perspective. In particular, these chapters examine the role of tourism in each of these small countries and the opportunities and challenges they face from a largely geopolitical perspective. Chapters 8 through 10 examine some of the manifestations of the political geographical characteristic of other, non-standard state outliers and unrecognized states in Europe and the role that tourism plays in each one, as well as how their geopolitics influences tourism. Chapter 11 consolidates what was learned from the empirical chapters (3-10), emphasizing the problems and prospects of tourism and ordinary life in these unique European polities. Finally, the concluding chapter highlights some of the main concepts elucidated throughout the pages of the book and suggests future research needs in the area of tourism and political geography.
