This book was conceived to fill a gap in the study of events and festivity with a research-oriented events management text. The book focuses on exposing underpinning theoretical frameworks and draws upon international case studies to help explain various event phenomena. It intentionally considers events from a research perspective, generating insights into the principal methodological approaches employed to produce empirical data while drawing attention to the future research needs of the field of event management. The book begins with an exploration of the social issues, impacts and developments in events research; it then moves on to analysing economic and management aspects surrounding research into the events industry, addresses issues of technology and tools and concludes with more political and policy-oriented chapters to highlight research into the main debates in the public sector and sphere. The book has 15 chapters and a subject index.--Arbeiter Ring Publishing, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Fearless City Mobile ...
