Revenue Management: Diffusion Patterns in Loyalty Programs. Ross, N. Geddes, W. This is, perhaps, surprising given both the increasingly litigious nature of tourists and the growing body of legislation directly and indirectly a!
However, law is now a common feature of most tourism and hospitality management degrees and lecturers, with few resource texts, face the challenge of achieving a balance between imparting basic legal principles and applying these to relevant tourism and hospitality situations.
Therein lies the attraction of this book. At "rst sight, Hospitality and tourism law appears to ful"l a real need for an all-encompassing textbook in this area. Thus, the preface leads one to believe that this book represents the text on tourism and hospitality law.
The book is divided into 12 chapters, varying from eight to 41 pages in length.
Chapter 2 is concerned with spelling out the rules relating to formation of contract, privity, law of agency and tort law, whilst Chapter 3 deals with forms of business orgainisations. Chapter 4 brie y covers product liability and part of the Consumer Protection Act and Chapter 5 goes on to spell out criminal responsibility. Chapters 6 and 7 both deal with employment legislation in some detail and Chapter 8 looks at planning, environmental and health and safety law.
As promised, this "rst section does provide most of what you would expect from an introductory law textbook. Moreover, the authors also attempt to explain di! However, this "rst part of the book is disappointing in a number of respects. Firstly, there is no opening chapter outlining the scope of the tourism and hospitality industries or the increasing importance of the law to organisations within them.
This signi"cant omission continues throughout; whilst most chapters have a short introduction, only one chapter actually mentions hospitality and tourism as part of its preamble. Thus, the legal principles described in each chapter are not set in the context of hospitality and tourism, not are their relevance and importance explained to the reader.
Occasionally, subsections are introduced giving a tourism example for example, the law of contract on p.
However, this is the exception rather than the rule and important areas of law such as agency, tort, criminal law and employment law are discussed with little reference to the industries in which the book claims to specialise. Only Chapter 8 Planning, Environment and Health and Safety Law states in its introduction that it will explain the relevance of the areas of law covered to the tourism and hospitality industry.
This it does, although brie y, in respect of planning and environmental law, but the section on health and safety law does not mention tourism or hospitality at all. Secondly, and in a similar vein, some chapters fail in their entirety to refer to hospitality and tourism; they read more like a standard business law text.
In particular, Chapter 3 makes no concession to the fact that it is part of a book on hospitality and tourism and gives few, if any, real examples. Although it gives a useful and detailed outline of general employment law and o! It even fails to mention the particular characteristics of tourism employment, such as the preponderance of part-time workers, short-term contracts, the dominance of female employees, or issues important to small as opposed to large employers, which might give rise to speci"c legal problems.
Thirdly, it is not unreasonable to expect a text book on hospitality and tourism law to explore the relevance of general legal principles to the speci"c areas of hospitality and tourism. Here, as would be expected, reference is made within most chapters to standard case law and precedent. However, parallels are rarely drawn with potential industry scenarios.
This means that, by and large, it is left up to the reader to consider the possible implications of non-tourism case law decisions for the tourism or hospitality sectors.
Fourthly, certain aspects of the law have been covered in great detail at the expense of other, arguably more relevant, areas. For example, Chapter 4 introduces product liability, yet it primarily explains the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act CPA which relate to manufactured products. Similarly, some other areas of the law which one might expect to be included in detail are overlooked. Another prime example is the Trade Descriptions Act which, other than brief paragraphs in Chapters 5 and 12, is not explored in any detail in the book.
Again, this is a signi"cant omission given the intangible nature of tourism and hospitality products and the ever-increasing need for organisations to market their product through description. The latter part of this book, from Chapters 9 to 12, is much more speci"c in content and presents an interesting, albeit eclectic, insight into a selection of aspects of law relating to tourism and hospitality. As the authors appear to deal with the book in two parts, general and speci"c, again it might have been useful to include a short introduction to both sections, outlining the rationale of the content of each and explaining which areas of the book would appeal to readers with particular interests or backgrounds.
For example, the chapters on food safety and licensing might be of particular interest to leisure management students.
While these "nal four chapters have some shortcomings similar to those discussed with reference to earlier chapters, such as a lack of real examples and a consideration of potential industry scenarios, they do attempt to address the law as it relates to speci"c areas of operations.
Chapter 11, in particular, takes an in-depth look as the licensing system and, collectively, the three chapters relating to hospitality provide a useful insight into the law as it relates to parts of this industry. There is no obligation to download and there are many very interesting brochures to examine'.
It would be hard to imagine a student on any degree course without this level of knowledge. To summarise, then, this book sets out to provide a comprehensive introduction to the law as it applies to hospitality and tourism.
In attempting to do so, it provides the reader with a useful introduction to a number of relevant general areas of law, whilst the chapters that focus upon law as it relates to the hospitality industry will be of particular interest to hospitality students.
However, although the idea of a single textbook covering all principal aspects of hospitality and tourism has obvious appeal in terms of both convenience and cost, it is, perhaps, inevitable that depth is sacri"ced for breadth.
As a result, this book has a number of weaknesses. Thus, the book does not add to what is found in established business law texts.
It is also written in a more traditional law text book style which readers from other disciplines may "nd less accessible. Therefore, the promise of this book is sadly unful"lled. References Corke, J. Tourism law 2nd ed.
