The Cambridge Companion to Travel Writing is a broad, specially commissioned introduction to travel writing in English between 1500 and the present. Five essays survey the period's travel writing; six more focus on areas of particular interest--Arabia, the Amazon, Ireland, Calcutta, the Congo and California, while the final three analyze some of the theoretical and cultural dimensions of this enigmatic, influential genre of writing. An extensive further reading list plus a detailed chronology are included.

Review:

"...this anthology is a good introduction to the history and criticism of travel writing." American Studies International

"Compact, clearly written, well structured, and superbly edited, this volume goes a long way toward correcting the 'absence within the academy of a tradition of critical attention to travel writing'.... Highly recommended." Choice
