In this collection of papers from the sixth and seventh annual Oxford Travel Writing colloquiums, editor Skinner (social anthropology, Queen's U.-Belfast) unites 10 contributors in anthropology, sociology, English literature, and even dance to examine journeys to sites significant in the history of war, violence, and oppression. Some specific topics discussed include tourism and neoliberal peace-building in divided societies, the comics journalism of Joe Sacco, accounts of genocide in travel writing about Rwanda, and the creation of a dance company for survivors of brain trauma. The book is illustrated with b&w photos. There is no subject index. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
