Arthur Asa Berger's Deconstructing Travel is an engaging look into why people travel, examining travel and tourism as a cultural phenomenon through social, cultural, psychological, and economic forces. Starting off with classical expeditions in mythology, history, and literatures, Berger explores the role of travel in contemporary lives, from university travel-abroad programs to package tours and family vacations.
