Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description

1995, 1st edition. 322 pp. Explores the lives and motives of those who have engaged in every conceivable kind of expedition: military, missionary, commercial, scientific, even tourist. Examines the bonds linking companies and bands, crews and fleets of soldiers, sailors, missionaries, and merchants, and the causes inspiring them to leave home, cross vast distances, and arrive in foreign lands. Unearths the public and private purposes served by expeditions, from conquest and religious conversion to pure fun and escapism. These sagas offer vital clues to our own time about how different nations and cultures communicate across the boundaries of words. Bibliography. Hardcover, DJ, New.
