The contributors to this volume address topics including the roots of socialist tourism, the role of tourism in the making of nations and maintenance of empire, and ways in which the men and women of the "margins of Europe" understood themselves in relation to "Europe." Especially interesting are chapters that show how individuals pursued their own consumerist goals within the framework of collective tourism, obliging the regimes to adapt.
Illustrated with period photographs and promotional materials, Turizm will appeal not only to historians of the region but also to anyone with an interest in consumer culture, travel, leisure, and nation-building.

You admire his ability to love like that, with all of his heart. It was shocking, considering I'm not a squishy person in the least. That's what he has me for anyway, to guide him and point him in the right direction. A simple guy will look at you with more pride than you thought was possible. I love what I write, and I love the fact that I work in a place that spurs my creativity and nurtures my writing to help it grow.
