Abstract:

Essays on British travel writers during a period when travel and travel writing were transformed by education, technology and politics. Air transportation and the automobile impacted travel during this period as did the advent of color film and movie cameras. Travel guides, rather than entertaining and informative travel books for the armchair traveler, were written. This period produced globe-trotters and expatriates who wrote significant bodies of travel literature.
