Linking the tourist function with a city’s internationalization attracts attention and encourages the reader to get acquainted with the book by Piotr Zmyślony, entitled “The tourist function in the process of city internationalization” published in 2015 by Wydawnictwo Proksenia (Poznań–Kraków). In the preface, which is always an important part of any scientific work the author underlines the fact that an inseparable bond exists between such processes as metropolization, internationalization, and the growth of tourism. Those processes are a manifestation of contemporary global reality which, in turn, results from the development of information technologies, widespread transport availability and the related increasing mobility of people, as well as from the “democratization” of consumption and production. This complex situation arouses an interest in tourism considered by “practitioners and theoreticians from the field of economics, sociology, geography, demography, psychology and other research disciplines” in the context of urban internationalization. The book by P. Zmyślony is an interdisciplinary publication from the area of economics (economics of tourism) and economic geography (urban geography). Więcej
