About Edward Elgar Handbooks

Edward Elgar Handbooks are original reference works designed to provide a broad overview of research in a given field whilst at the same time creating a forum for more challenging, critical examination of complex and often under-explored issues. Often widely cited, individual chapters present expert scholarly analysis and offer a vital reference point for advanced research. Taken as a whole, they achieve a wide-ranging picture of the state-of-the-art. See for example, the  Handbook for Sustainable Tourism Practitioners, edited by Anna Spenceley.
