This, the first part of a two volume collection of new essays from international scholars, is concerned with examining the British experience of travel, tourism, and imperialism. It considers the British travelling beyond their isles over the last three hundred years, and through a range of interdisciplinary perspectives reflects on their taste for discovery and self-discovery both through the exploration – and exploitation – of other lands and peoples, and also through their encounters with other societies and civilisations. The development into new forms of travel and tourism challenged the perceptions the British had of the world – and the world of the British. These journeys impacted on the representation and formation of 'Britishness', and the construction of national identity by defining a non-British world or a world becoming 'British'. Ranging around the globe, and across the social spectrum, Travellers and Tourists travels to both the closest overseas and the most remote.
