Developing countries have undergone significant industrialization in the last three decades. Yet industrial growth reveals marked spatial inequalities in terms of both country and location. The Newly Industrialised Countries have achieved spectacular growth in sharp contrast to many other countries of the South. Industrial structure has changed, moving away from labour intensive industries to more technologically advanced manufacturing. Developing countries have had considerable success in penetrating developed country markets but they are now encountering more market restrictions. The role of the government in the development of the economy is also changing. Increasingly, countries are turning towards export-orientated industrialization strategies and privatization whilst their governments are emphasising their facilitative role.

Increasingly it is argued that the growth of tourism offers a means for Third World countries to escape the confines of "underdevelopment". This text explores and challenges the notion of sustainability and its relationship to contemporary tourism in the developing world. Drawing on examples from throughout the area, particularly Central America and the Caribbean, the authors trace the inception of sustainability within environmentalism and its extension into the realism of socio-cultural and economic thinking, policy and practice. Developing the relationship between a number of critical themes, from tourists and their relationships with new social movements to the impact of tourism policies adopted by national governments, the text examines a number of alternatives for the development of tourism in the Third World to progress.
