Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This volume contains especially commissioned chapters by leading researchers who have used and modified Richard Butler's Tourism Area Life Cycle (TALC) model over the past two decades, as well as a reprint of the original article, a discussion of its origins, and a comprehensive review of most of the published material using the TALC. The book is divided into five sections: foundations of the TALC (chapters 1-4); implementation of the TALC (chapters 5-7); the TALC in heritage settings (chapters 8-10); local involvement and the TALC (chapters 11-15); and the TALC and rejuvenation (chapters 16-18). Each section features an introduction from Butler. The concluding chapter discusses the relevance of the model to both sustainability and the late Elvis Presley.
