This  unique and thoughtful book considers the tourism specialization,  economic growth, and tourism competitiveness of a very specific type of  tourism: small islands practicing warm water island tourism.

This  new book thoroughly examines the phenomenon of why some small island  destinations have been more successful than others. The main premise  applied is that success and survival of small island tourism hinges on  resolving the mystery regarding the relationship between competitiveness  and quality of life. In addressing this question, the book reviews four  relevant and interconnected concepts: tourism, competitiveness, quality  of life, and scale (or size). In doing so, the book enhances  understanding of the potential of tourism for the improvement of the  quality of life of the residents of small islands.

In  the last chapter of the book, the author assesses the impact of  COVID-19 on tourism and specifically its ramifications for small island  destinations. Whether small island populations can rise from beneath the  COVID -19 burden that threatens their economic future is yet to be  seen.

Small Island and Small Destination Tourism: Overcoming the Smallness Barrier for Economic Growth and Tourism Competitiveness is written from a sustainable perspective that combines tourism  dynamics, development, competitiveness, quality of life, and business.  As such, it is aimed at a broad but higher-level audience including  graduate students, academicians and researchers, practitioners,  policymakers, and international organizations.
