As research in tourism and hospitality reaches maturity, a growing number of methodological approaches are being utilized and, in addition, this knowledge is dispersed across a wide range of journals. Consequently there is a broad and multidisciplinary community of tourism and hospitality researchers whom, at present, need to look widely for support on methods. In this volume, researchers fulfil a pressing need by clearly presenting methodological issues within tourism and hospitality research alongside particular methods and share their experiences of what works, what does not work and where challenges and innovations lie.

Understanding the global hotel business is not possible without paying specific attention to hotel chain management and dynamics. Chains are big business, approximately 80 percent of hotels currently being constructed around the world are chain affiliated and, in 2014, the five largest brands held over a one million rooms. The high economic importance of the hotel chains and their global presence justifies the academic research in the field however, despite this, there is no uniform coverage in the current body of literature. This Handbook aids in filling the gap by exploring and critically evaluates the debates, issues and controversies of all aspects of hotel chains from their nature, fundamentals of existence and operation, expansion, strategic and operational aspects of their activities and geographical presence. It brings together leading specialists from range of disciplinary backgrounds and regions to provide state-of-the-art theoretical reflection and empirical research on current issues and future debates. Each of the five inter-related section explores and evaluates issues that are of extreme importance to hotel chain management, focusing on theoretical issues, the expansion of hotel chains, strategic and operational issues, the view point of the individual affiliated hotel and finally the current and future debates in the theory and practice of hotel chain management arising from globalisation, demographic trends, sustainability, and new technology development. It provides an invaluable resource for all those with an interest in hotel management, hospitality, tourism and business encouraging dialogue across disciplinary boundaries and areas of study. This is essential reading for students, researchers and academics of Hospitality as well as those of Tourism, Marketing, Business and Events Management.

<B>Diese Arbeit wurde mit dem <I>Wissenschaftspreis der ITB ausgezeichnet.<BR> Fur den Tourismusbereich hat das Krisenmanagement inzwischen fundamentale Bedeutung. Kaum eine Organisation kann es sich noch leisten, sich einer intensiven und fruhzeitigen Auseinandersetzung mit Krisen zu entziehen. <BR> Mit dieser Arbeit werden zum ersten Mal die zugrunde liegenden Zusammenhange in ihrer Breite dargestellt und die Wirkungsprozesse negativer Ereignisse unter Anwendung der Systemtheorie umfassend analysiert. Konsequenzen, die sich daraus fur die verschiedenen Wettbewerbsstrategien ergeben, werden genauso untersucht, wie den Notwendigkeiten und Moglichkeiten des praventiven Krisenmanagements nachgegangen wird. Weitere Schwerpunkte der Arbeit liegen bei der Darstellung von Gestaltungsmoglichkeiten der Fruhaufklarung, den Strategien zur Krisenhandhabung und der umfassenden Beurteilung der Einsatzmoglichkeiten des Marketinginstrumentariums. Das Ergebnis ist ein umfassender marketingorientierter Ansatz des Krisenmanagements fur den Tourismusbereich, welcher nicht nur helfen soll, die Vorgange besser zu begreifen, sondern zukunftig auch die richtigen Vorsorgemassnahmen zu treffen."
