Preserve or Destroy: Tourism and the Environment

by Jonathan Croall - £6.95  Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (1995)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780903319690 | ISBN 10: 0903319691

This book gives a devastating account of how tourism has ruined precious landscapes, polluted coast and countryside, and destroyed the distinctive cultures of many communities. But it is also a hopeful book. A growing number of people are realising the urgent need for tourism to be made more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
Focusing on Britain and Ireland, but also drawing on experiences from around the world, the author looks at an impressive variety of pioneering initiatives in which local people play a key role in tourism development. For all who care about the future of our landscape, or want to find out how to become more responsible tourists, Preserve or Destroy will prove both stimulating and necessary reading.
