New tourism book

Researcher Arjen Alberts has published a new article entitled “Resilience and Tourism in Islands: Insights from the Caribbean” in the book “Tourism and Resilience” that was edited by international tourism expert Richard Butler. Alberts teamed up with co-author professor Godfrey Baldacchino of the University of Malta for the article. The article deals with the cases of St. Maarten, Aruba and the US Virgin Islands – three territories that share many experiences in their heavy dependence on the tourism product. The article is Alberts’ second international publication and part of his PhD thesis with the University of Amsterdam on the topic of the socio-economic consequences of our tourism-driven development model. The book is available from the publisher, the Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International (CABI) in the United Kingdom and Amazon.
