Included in the volume is a state-of-the-art review of philosophies, approaches and methods of research currently in use in the field. A key feature of the book is the coverage of application of these philosophical issues and alternative research methods and approaches. Beyond this, the book discusses perspectives, practices and problems in hospitality management with chapters ranging from a review of quality management, strategic management, IT management right through to small business management.
