Summary
Over the past two decades, interest in travel has developed significantly. Critical engagement with imperialism, postcolonialism, diasporas, ethnography, and cultural anthropology has led to increasingly sophisticated readings of the travel writing genre and a growing acknowledgement of its complex history. This book is the first study of its kind to identify a specifically Sub-Saharan African lineage within the broader tradition of travel writing. As well as exploring the reasons for Africans' exclusion from the genre, it examines the important relationship between ethnicity and travel, and identifies the concerns and preoccupations that define African writers' approaches to travel
