From the Publisher:
From time to time, most of us either adopt a "tourist" identity or are framed within another's experience of travel and voyeurism. Travellers' Tales investigates the future of travelling in a world whose boundaries are shifting and dissolving. The contributors bring together popular and critical discourse of travel to explore questions of identity and politics; history and narration; collecting, appropriating or representing other cultures; and tourism.
