Other routes : 1500 years of African and Asian travel writing

edited by Tabish Khair ... [et al.] ; foreword by Amitav Ghosh

..". brings new insights into the colonial relationship while challenging the unspoken temptation that this was a distinctly European period." Simon GikandiOther Routes collects important primary work by travel writers from Asia and Africa in English translation. An introduction by Tabish Khair discusses travel literature as a genre, the perception of travel and writing about travel as a European privilege, and the emergence of new writings that show that travel has been a human occupation that crosses time and culture. This original and significant book will interest armchair travelers and others in views of people and places away from the European traveler s gaze.Selections include "The Travels of a Japanese Monk" (c. 838), "Al-Abdari, the Disgruntled Traveller" (c. 1290), "A Korean Official s Account of China" (1488), "The Poetry of Basho s Road" (1689), "Malabari: A Love-Hate Affair with the British" (1890)."
