"In this rich, elegant, and fascinating book, Susan McWilliams asks us to recall the Greek theoros?" - the theorist-traveller who journeyed to other lands then returned home to describe the institutions and habits that he saw there, and the reasons and principles behind them. Ever since, she maintains, travel and the imagination of travel has been an important source for thinking about political possibility... With a tour through works about travel, works by traveling theorists, and works imagining theoretically interesting travel?
