Summary "This anthology introduces readers to the rich body of travel writing from eastern Europe. It presents a selection of accounts written over the past 450 years, chosen from many different types of author - from the well-known to the obscure - and representing many different genres of travel writing, from personal letters to self-consciously literary exercises. The extracts illustrate the variety of ways in which east Europeans have written about Europe, and their place in relation to it."--Publisher's description
