Description - In Search of Hospitality by Conrad Lashley

'In Search of Hospitality' is a unique contribution to the study of hospitality, exploring the practice of hospitality across disciplines, and adopting an international perspective where appropriate. This title brings together an extraordinary collection of leading researches and writers in hospitality, sociology, philosophy and social history, thereby providing a broad and comprehensive perspective on hospitality. It focuses the study of hospitality across the range of human, social and economic settings, and provides a reference point for the future development of hospitality as an academic discipline. Harnessing this wide range of viewpoints, 'In Search of Hospitality' offers an intellectually stimulating and innovative approach to the study of hospitality. It is ideal for students and academics within both the applied fields of hospitality and tourism studies and the general fields of business studies and behaviour sciences.
