With this book, we aim at contributing to the existing efforts to bridge these two extensively realated strands of literature where we compiled several individual contributions that present how tourism reseachers can integrate regional thought into their analysis and at the same time how regional scientists consider tourism as a vital part of the regional economic systems.

The European Union and the Return of the Nation State


This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
