[Extract] This volume provides personal accounts of the careers of 10 select scholars who have made important contributions to the study of tourism. In particular, the individuals providing the autobiographies have contributed especially to the study of tourist behavior and experience. Their work implicitly or explicitly approaches tourism study from the perspective of psychology, social psychology, applied sociology, or derivatives from those traditions in marketing and recreation. Curiously, perhaps, few of the scholars would be described at this point in their career as a psychologist, social psychologist, or microsociologist. They are more likely to be called marketing researchers, tourism researchers, consumer behavior analysts, or recreation specialists.
