Reviews

'Tourism and hospitality consumption patterns are changing rapidly, propelled by the ubiquity of new technologies. Practitioners and scholars face the challenge of keeping up to date with the diverse and multi-disciplinary consumer behavior literature. This authoritative handbook addresses the need for a comprehensive collation of contributions by leading and emerging authors which balances the latest developments with more established guiding principles. The various chapters feature many informative international case studies that are drawn from settings across the tourism and hospitality field.'- Brian King, Professor & Associate Dean, School of Hotel & Tourism Management, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University 'What is in-store for you when reading this Routledge handbook: equal in-depth treatment of both the tourism and hospitality disciplines, global coverage by scholars from more than 30 nations across five continents, many original contributions to theory, all chapters with discussions of a set of useful references, most chapters include a useful case study told as a story followed by generalizable insights. This handbook is highly readable and useful-a go-to source book for early, mid, and late career tourism, hospitality, management, and marketing scholars who want to do both useful and high impact research in tourism and/or hospitality.'- Arch G. Woodside, Professor of Marketing, Curtin University, Australia 'Consumer behaviour in tourism and hospitality has always been a pivotal research area looking at tourists' preferences, expectations and motivations. The questions of what pushes and pulls travellers to specific destinations, how exogenous and endogenous constraints influence travel behaviour, and how tourists' background characteristics shape travel patterns are all crucial to tourism and hospitality operators. This volume is a vital new source for answering the above questions and many others. I welcome this new and important book and highly recommend it as essential reading for practitioners and students alike.'- Yoel Mansfeld, Professor and Head, Center for Tourism, Pilgrimage & Recreation Research, University of Haifa, Israel

This makes the book appropriate for both beginners and advanced researchers and educators not only in the field of Tourism and Hospitality but in the area of Marketing, Relationship marketing, Management and Consumer behaviour as well. Most of the chapters include challenging propositions for future empirical research. The impressive number of case studies and practical examples, illustrating the theoretical and conceptual frameworks, adds significant value to the collection. European Journal of Tourism Research 19 (2017) reviewed by Nina Zlateva, Varna University of Management, Varna, Bulgaria. The Routledge Handbook of Consumer Behaviour in Hospitality and Tourism, edited by Saurabh Kumar Dixit is a very comprehensive collection of chapters focused on consumer behavior and all its facets and is a solid reference tool for the field. Examining the field of consumer behavior from an applied perspective emphasizes the important role in determining the amount of autonomy given to service employees in solving consumer behavior issues (Bowen & Lawler, 1992, 1995). This statement focuses on the tie between consumer behavior and the service industries most specifically hospitality and tourism. This text provides multiple examples of all aspects of consumer behavior and is well organized. Chapters can be a catalyst for discussion if used in a class and/or a great reference tool. Faculty can also utilize the multiple case studies as teaching and learning tools. Anatolia 30:1 (2019) reviewed by Robert M. O'Halloran, Professor, School of Hospitality Leadership, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC, USA Although a plethora of literature has been published so far on CB in tourism, only a few extensive studies exist in this area. The Routledge Handbook of Consumer Behaviour in Hospitality and Tourism edited by Sauarbh Kumar Dixit is one among such studies. The editor of this handbook deserves appreciation for assembling and editing such a bulky volume on CB for print. The Routledge Handbook of Consumer Behaviour in Hospitality and Tourism has covered the themes such as customer satisfaction, consumer trust and loyalty, emotions, influence of technological advancement including web technology and social media, ethical issues and cross-cultural issues of CB in detail. It is a valuable collection for students and others involved in tourism and hospitality marketing. Tourism Recreation Research, 44:1 (2019) reviewed by Syed Masood Ansar Naqvi, Centre for Tourism Research & Development, India. Trying to understand why consumers are choosing certain tourism products and services over others constitutes an essence of tourism and hospitality marketing. However, the topic is very broad and there is a plethora of approaches and studies from all over the world dealing with this issue. The Routledge Handbook of Consumer Behaviour in Hospitality and Tourism is exactly the book that was required for conceptualizing the existing vast globalized body of literature, concepts and ideas. It provides a comprehensive all-inclusive overview of consumer behaviour from different viewpoints and uses many relevant case studies from tourism and hospitality. Hospitality & Society, 10:1 (2020) reviewed by Wadim Strielkowski, Professor, Prague Business School, Czech Republic. It is indeed an achievement of the editor, Saurabh Kumar Dixit, to organise and draw together 46 chapters on the important theme of consumer behaviour with specific reference to hospitality and tourism. In particular, the nationality mix of authors is impressive. Europe, the United Kingdom, South Asia, Australia and New Zealand are all well represented. The Handbook is hard work and will suit only the ardent graduate student and researcher. Journal of Hospitality and Tourism Management, 36 (2018) reviewed by Philip Pearce, Foundation Professor of Tourism, James Cook University, Australia. The Routledge Handbook of Consumer Behaviour in Hospitality and Tourism makes an important contribution for a comprehensive understanding of consumer behaviour in tourism and hospitality. Although the book as a whole hefty in size, the chapters provide succinct information without boring the reader. The chapters contain short case studies, vignettes to enhance understanding consumer behaviour topics. Although most chapters are conceptual chapters in the text book format, there are chapters in research monograph format too. The book is an extremely valuable source of reference for tourism and hospitality research students and researchers who would like to explore a wide variety aspects of consumer behaviour in tourism and hospitality. Annals of Tourism Research, 70 (2018) reviewed by Erdogan Koc, Professor, Bandirma Onyedi Eylul University, Turkey.
