Tourism, in recent years, has assumed a pivotal role in the infrastructural development of both international and national economies. Today Tourism occupies the position of the second most important industry in the world next only to the oil industry. The author has analysed the role of tourism from the macro-initiative to a micro-realization of its benefits. In this study the state of Madhya Pradesh has been selected for its spots of tourist interest. The author has provided a graphic economic analysis with its multiplier co-efficients on tourists expenditures and development of local infrastructural facilities keeping in view the regional employment potential. The book enhances our understanding of the quantifiable economic variables related to the industry as a mass consumption phenomenon. Tourism has been able to open up new vistas of challenge and opportunity which need to be harnessed significantly by the emergence of a new sector called the Tourist Industry. Contents Chapter 1: Tourism in the National Economy; Chapter 2: Review of Literature; Chapter 3: Tourism in Madhya Pradesh; Chapter 4: Employment Potential of Tourism in the State; Chapter 5: Financial Aspects of Tourism; Chapter 6: An Overview.
