9781137484970: Walking Histories, 1800-1914

Few historians have written about walking, despite its obvious centrality to the human condition. Focusing on the period 1800-1914, this book examines the practices and meanings of walking in the context of transformative modernity. It boldly suggests that once historians place walking at the heart of their analyses, exciting new perspectives on themes central to the ‘long nineteenth century’ emerge. Walking Histories, 1800-1914 adopts a global perspective, including contributions from specialists in the history and culture of Great Britain, North America, Australia, Russia, East-Central Europe, and South Asia. Critically engaging with recent research, the contributions within offer fresh insights for academic experts, while remaining accessible to student readers. This book will be essential reading for those interested in movement, travel, leisure, urban history, and environmental history.

Review:

“Striking into new territory, Walking Histories demonstrates walking's foundational participation in modernity. Eleven essays range through Britain, Europe and Asia, opening fresh perspectives on the richly-varied, potentially contradictory meanings of walking as conservative tradition and radical resistance, as return to nature and commercial opportunity, as sport and act of piety.” (Anne D. Wallace, UNC Greensboro, US)
