Voyages and visions : towards a cultural history of travel

edited by Jaś Elsner and Joan-Pau Rubiés

This title is presented with essays by Kasia Boddy, Michael Bravo, Peter Burke, Melissa Calaresu, Jesus Maria Carillo Castillo, Peter Hansen, Edward James, Nigel Leask, Joan-Pau Rubies and Wes Williams. A much-needed contribution to the expanding interest in the history of travel and travel writing, "Voyages and Visions" is the first attempt to sketch a cultural history of travel from the sixteenth century to the present day. The essays address the theme of travel as a historical, literary and imaginative process, focusing on significant episodes and encounters in world history. The contributors to this collection include historians of art and of science, anthropologists, literary critics and mainstream cultural historians. Their essays encompass a challenging range of subjects, including the explorations of South America, India and Mexico; mountaineering in the Himalayas; space travel; science fiction; and, American post-war travel fiction. "Voyages and Visions" is truly interdisciplinary, and essential reading for anyone interested in travel writing.
