Review "The Global Politics of Contemporary Travel Writing is an important extension of critical international relations via an encounter with cultural studies. Its rigorous demonstration of the way popular culture makes international power possible, through an incisive analysis of how contemporary travel writing reproduces colonial relations, is an intellectual journey with the possibility of new political visions at the end of the line." David Campbell, Professor of Cultural and Political Geography, Durham University "A wonderful interdisciplinary investigation that lets us understand the place and significance of some of the most popular 'Western' travel writers at the same time that it lets us see our unequal world in a new way." Craig N. Murphy, M. Margaret Ball Professor of International Relations, Department of Political Science, Wellesley College "An invitation to re-imagine the relationship between global politics, travel, and travel writing. The Global Politics of Contemporary Travel Writing is a journey well worth taking for scholars and students of International Relations, as well as for travel and travel writing aficionatos." Cynthia Weber, Professor, Department of Politics and International Relations, Lancaster University "At a time when it is so difficult yet so important to engage very carefully with the uneasy relation between cosmopolitan aspirations and hegemonies and colonialisms of various kinds, Debbie Lisle offers an engaging, provocative and often very acute account of how travel writings engage in border-crossings that are so much more than international." R.B.J. Walker, Keele University, UK and University of Victoria, Canada. Book Description Debbie Lisle examines the connections between the 'serious' world of international politics and the 'superficial' world of contemporary travel writing, arguing that best-selling travelogues, such as those by Paul Theroux, Bill Bryson, Bruce Chatwin and Michael Palin, engage with political issues including equality, multiculturalism and justice.
