Modern travel in world history Tom Taylor


This book is about the development of travel from its very beginnings to today’s technology enhanced mass movements and studies its interweaving with social and cultural evolutions. In order to place it in a more global context of world history, it studies no only the mindsets and motivations of the travelers themselves in their respective time but also their impact on the making of the modern world.

Intended mainly to students of world history and literature, I think it could also be of interest to anyone curious to learn about a more global and deeper meaning of travel.
