An increasingly popular genre, addressing issues of space, language, colonialism, globalization and politics, travel writing offers the reader a movement between the familiar and the unknown. In this volume, Carl Thompson: introduces the genre, outlining competing definitions and key debates, provides a broad historical survey from the medieval period to the present day, considers contemporary issues of tourism, migration and displacement, looks both at canonical and more, marginal works in women's writing, colonial and postcolonial writing, and examines the place of travel writing in the construction of 'pioneering' narratives of America. Concise and practical, "Travel Writing" is the ideal introduction for those new to the subject, as well as a crucial overview of the terminology, history and debates within the field.
