MEDIA REVIEWS
..."Stagl's explorations of late eighteenth-century debates over the nature of World History are also enlightening, as they reveal the origins of Volkskunde and ethnologie - categories that were to dominate travel and scholarship for the next two centries to the present."
-The Voltaire Foundation of University of Oxford, John P. Mitchell, Queens College, Cambridge
"This strikingly original, painstakingly researched...book exhibits all the virtues and a few of the weaknesses of long-sustained maverick devotion. Though not exclusively focused upon travel, it will remain a pillar of scholarship in travel history...For anyone interested in the history of travel cultures this book - with its rich references to primary manuscript sources and German historical scholarship not available in English - will prove indispensable."
-Judith Adler of Department of Sociology, Memorial University of New Foundland, Canada
