Dr. John Brewer examines travel, tourism, and identity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a time when the terms "tourism" and "tourist" first came into common use.  What was the nature and purpose of tourism?  How did tourists affect the identity and economy of the places they visited?  How have relations between travelers and natives changed in a world increasingly characterized by high levels of mobility?
