On Holiday: A History of Vacationing
Orvar Lofgren. Beginning his cultural journey among some 18th-century pioneers of tourism, Lofgren takes us on a tour of the Western holiday world & shows how two centuries of “learning to be a tourist” have shaped our own ways of vacationing. We see how fashions in destinations have changed through the years, with popular images (written, drawn, painted, & later photographed) teaching the tourist what to look for & how to experience it. The means of travel have bred their own expectations & rewards. Faster & more affordable transportation has permitted more than a small elite to go “on holiday,” leading to the package tour & the globalization of tourism. Talks about the ongoing battle that results from travelers’ differing values. Illustrations.
