Uncle Mame's memoir, What a Wonderful World, reports the adventures of Mr. and Mrs. Mame on their world travels over a fifty-year period. Declared by some as the modern version of Innocents Abroad, Uncle Mame's tale is composed of the weekly emails he sent, as they traveled, to friends at home - one of whom describes the collection as ''our erudite, geopolitical summary of our passages.''

The author avers he has no pretension of adding to world history or adding enlightenment to sociological events, but he sincerely hopes his approach may be pursued by others who believe, as he does, in the value of travel in making the geopolitics of this wonderful world more exciting and appealing especially to students.
