"Given the popularity of travel studies and the quality of Thompson's effort, this book seems likely to become required reading for those interested in the genre. Summing Up: Highly recommended." - P. A. Riggle, Truman State University in CHOICE
"...a really exceptional introduction to the genre ... as exhaustive in its coverage as it is scrupulous in its analysis of the different forms and effects of travel writing." Robert Spencer, University of Manchester, Journal of Postcolonial Writing, 48.4
"This is an outstanding volume, cogently argued and intelligently illustrated. It is a highly recommended introduction for those curious about the subject, but will also constitute for those already familiar with the field a refreshing engagement with, and firm intervention in, contemporary scholarship on the form." Charles Forsdick, University of Liverpool, Studies in Travel Writing 17.1From the Publisher:
An increasingly popular genre – addressing issues of empire, colonialism, post-colonialism, globalization, gender and politics – travel writing offers the reader a movement between the familiar and the unknown.
In this volume, Carl Thompson:
Concise and practical, Travel Writing is the ideal introduction for those new to the subject, as well as a crucial overview of current debates in the field.
