Eric Leed (au). Explores the lives & motives of those who have engaged in every conceivable kind of expedition: military, missionary, commercial, scientific, even tourist. Examines the bonds linking companies & bands, crews & fleets of soldiers, sailors, missionaries, & merchants, & the causes inspiring them to leave home, cross vast distances, & arrive in foreign lands. Unearths the public & private purposes served by expeditions, from conquest & religious conversion to pure fun & escapism. These sagas offer vital clues to our own time about how different nations & cultures communicate across the boundaries of words. Bibliography.
