About this title


Increasingly students from the affluent countries are going abroad as part of their "educational experience." Although students see these experiences as invaluable and believe that they have learned a lot, the anthropological literature suggests the opposite; that travel abroad has a greater impact on the hosts than on the visitors and that indeed travel abroad, far from leading to students becoming more open-minded or learning about the other, can reinforce their stereotypes. The standards in anthropology teach humility and the ability to learn from those in the host country. This short book can be read pre-departure and while abroad to provide the reader the practical and philosophical tools needed to create an enriched and mind-broadening experience.

About the Author:

The author of several books including The Bushman Myth, and the co-edited Tarzan was an Eco-tourist, Rob Gordon has done field research in Namibia, Lesotho, South Africa, and Papua New Guinea. He is Professor of Anthropology at the University of Vermont and a Research Associate at the University of the Free State. An inveterate traveler, he enjoys hiking and kayaking.
