Roy C. Wood, Visiting Professor, Tourism and the Visitor Economy, University of Cumbria, UK reviews 'Tourism in Asian Cities', Saurabh Kumar Dixit (Ed.), Routledge (2021), ISBN 9780367210021.

First, a declaration of interest: this reviewer is an erstwhile Routledge author and has contributed to several ‘handbook’ collections by the editor of the volume under review. A search through ‘top’ tourism journals and book publishers' websites reveals that with the exception of numerous contributions from academics in the People's Republic of China and Taiwan, researchers from other Asian countries are comparatively absent. The same is true for Africa and South America. On those grounds alone the present volume could be welcomed for the fact that a significant number of its contributors come from a range of Asian countries. The book comprises sixteen contributions beyond a brief introduction and these are organized into three sections.
