In these essays which originally appeared in Rolling Stone, Jan Morris captures the essence of places as diverse as Washington just after Watergate, Delhi under Mrs. Gandhi, Panama on the eve of the U.S. treaty debate, and Cairo at the time of the Israeli-Egyptian peace talks. Her essay on Manhattan may be the single best article on New York since E.B. White's famous book 30 years ago. She also writes on L.A., Pretoria and Rhodesia, London, Istanbul, and Trieste.

"Jan Morris's accounts of her journeys are distinguished by a veteran journalist's eye for the precisely revealing detail, the prose of a master stylist, and the insights of a wise and worldly traveller. Students of writing and of the literature of travel will find much to learn and to enjoy in Destinations."--Robert Emmett Ginna, Jr., Harvard University "Jan Morris's accounts of her journeys are distinguished by a veteran journalist's eye for the precisely revealing detail, the prose of a master stylist, and the insights of a wise and worldly traveller.
