The development of tourism and its associated elements owes much to the efforts of individuals. Many of them left imprints on tourism, through their innovations, promotion or insight, that have continued long after they have departed the scene. This volume consists of essays by experts in their fields on individuals who have influenced tourism over many hundreds of years of travel: development of destinations, services and accommodation, creation of transportation links and attractions, tourist behavior, innovations in the era of large scale tourism and the establishment of future trends.
