India alike a developing country is a developing tourist destination, hence, problems concerning tourism deserve careful academic consideration and understanding. Therefore, as per need of the hour many institutions have started teaching tourism at undergraduate and postgraduate level, but there is a dearth of textbooks, on the subject, written by Indian authors and students are forced to read books written by foreign authors in which the subject had been discussed without taking Indian realities into consideration. Here it may also be mentioned that the Indian authors have written books which are as per need of particular institutions of university. Therefore, there is a basic need of a book which may be useful to all the students in Indian tourism institutions. This book on tourism is a small textbook on the subject for students at the college level and informal layman who have an interest in the subject to enable them to understand the basic concepts of the subject most interesting. The present work is the modest attempt to explain the subject in a simple and lucid language and covers all aspects of tourism and we hope that this book will be helpful for the students getting education in tourism anywhere in India. The present work among several others, published in India claims to be the most comprehensive. This book lays down the basic concepts of tourism as required to be understood by every specialist of the subject. This book contains point analysis and description of the subject in Indian socio-educational, socio-political and socio-cultural context. It covers the syllabi of all the Indian universities and tourism institutions on the subject drawing examples from Indian social realities. Chapter 26 captioned 'Status of Tourism and Tourist Education in India' and Chapter 27 captioned 'Areas of Career Opportunities in Tourism Industry' are the special features of this book, which no other book written on the subject contains. Hence, this book will be most useful to the reader.
