Does ecotourism deliver real environmental benefits or is it just a marketing opportunity - 'green greed'? Through extensive use of case study and interview material, A Trip Too Far presents the first critical analysis of the impacts of ecotourism, both positive and negative, and shows how, given the right political context and regulation, it can work to support conservation and local economies.

coverThe ideas and proposals that are presented will be important for the development of ecotourism around the globe and of vital reading for academics in development and environmental studies and those working in environmental non-governmental organizations and the tourism industry.
