Tourism in Russia – A management handbook edited by Frederic Dimanche and Lidia Andrades is a timely and informative report, by an international group of researchers from 16 EU and Russian institutions, on topical issues concerning tourism in Russia. Authors collaborated to report the results of an EU-funded project aimed to boost the competitiveness and sustainability of tourism as well as enhancing the curricula in higher education institutions in the Russian Federation. Since mid-twentieth century, the tourism industry in Russia has been acknowledged as a complex economic sector, and as such has attracted scholarly attention from a range of disciplines including geography, anthropology, politics, sociology and business studies. Tourism in Russia, the world largest country, remains in its infancy.
