In this volume, Carl Thompson introduces the genre, outlining competing definitions and key debates provides a broad historical survey from the medieval period to the present day explores the autobiographical dimensions of the form looks at both men and women'"s travel writing, surveying a range of canonical and more marginal works, drawn from both the colonial and postcolonial eras utilises both British and American travelogues to consider the genre's role in shaping the history of both nations.
