Reviews

“The chapters of the second volume are assembled around the narrower theme of British imperialism and organized in thematic groupings that highlight complementary methodologies or research questions. … contributes a unique perspective to understand the relationship between travel and British identity, delivered with insightful arguments and supported with rigorous primary research. Collectively, the chapters build on a growing literature that examines European travel or tourism as more than benign acts of observation or discovery.” (Steve Marti, H-Net Humanities and Social Sciences, h-net.org, August, 2016)
