520    Between the mid-eighteenth and the early twentieth 
       centuries, home tourism within Britain and Ireland became 
       established as part of a vibrant tourist industry 
       increasingly aware of its own commercial powers and social
       responsibilities. Travel Writing and Tourism in Britain 
       and Ireland brings together leading international 
       historians and travel writing experts in a series of 
       timely essays that examine this phenomenon. 
       Chronologically arranged, the contributions chart the 
       formation of British and Irish tourism with reference to a
       broad range of writings, including diaries, guidebooks, 
       works in translation, and fictional accounts, as well as 
       more traditional travel narratives. Evaluating the 
       perspectives of travellers from the British Isles, as well
       as visitors from America and Continental Europe, the 
       collection emphasizes the role of peripheries, borders, 
       and regionalism in the construction of gender, class, and 
       national identity. With its broad regional and historical 
       coverage, this book should appeal to students and scholars
       of travel writing and tourism across the humanities and 
       social sciences
