Kimchi Kiwis by Gareth Morgan

Original Title: Kimchi Kiwis

Join Gareth and Jo Morgan and their companions as they rattle and splash their way around North Korea on their epic Motorcycle Adventure. Experience with them the thrill of riding through North Korea, the hermit kingdom itself. Above all, discover with them the truth behind the headlines that define North Korea and its people to the outside world, and sorrow at the tragedy that has prevented one third of the Korean people taking their place in the world. Ever since the cessation of hostilities in the Korean War in 1953, the Korean Peninsula has been divided into two states. The Armistice Agreement drew a line between North and South Korea, and friends and families found themselves on either side of a jealously guarded political divide, their sorrow part of a macabre relic of the folly that was the Cold War. Kiwi motorcycle adventurers Gareth and Jo Morgan had been frequent visitors to South Korea before they were invited to travel to North Korea in 2012. While on that trip, they told the North Korean authorities of their wish to ride their motorbikes the length of the Korean Peninsula, as the fitting climax to a ride the were planning along the Road of Bones, the Kolyma Highway in Siberia, Russia. The North Koreans declared themselves willing to help — and in 2013, the Morgans’ dream came true. Join Gareth and Jo and their companions as they rattle and splash their way around the Kolyma Highway, the main road of the terrible Soviet gulag archipelago. Experience with them the thrill of riding through North Korea, the hermit kingdom itself. Chew your nails as they prepare to cross the Demilitarised Zone between the Koreas, one of the most heavily fortified borders in the world. Rejoice with them as they press on down the length of the Baekdu Daegan, the sacred mountain range that forms the spine of the Korean Peninsula, to complete the first ever motorcycle traverse of both Koreas.

A Landscape Of Travel by Jenny Chio

Original Title: A Landscape Of Travel

Drawing on ethnographic research conducted in Pingan (a Zhuang village in Guangxi) and Upper Jidao (a Miao village in Guizhou), Jenny Chio analyzes the myriad challenges and possibilities confronted by villagers who are called upon to do the work of tourism. She addresses the shifting significance of migration and rural mobility, the visual politics of tourist photography, and the effects of touristic desires for "exotic difference" on village social relations. In this way, Chio illuminates the contemporary regimes of labor and leisure and the changing imagination of what it means to be rural, ethnic, and modern in China today. Jenny Chio is assistant professor of anthropology and associated faculty in film and media studies at Emory University. A Landscape of Travel is about China becoming a nation that travels, and one way of traveling is to be a tourist.

The Routledge Companion To Travel Writing by Carl Thompson

Original Title: The Routledge Companion To Travel Writing

As many places around the world confront issues of globalization, migration and postcoloniality, travel writing has become a serious genre of study, reflecting some of the greatest concerns of our time. Encompassing forms as diverse as field journals, investigative reports, guidebooks, memoirs, comic sketches and lyrical reveries; travel writing is now a crucial focus for discussion across many subjects within the humanities and social sciences. An ideal starting point for beginners, but also offering new perspectives for those familiar with the field, The Routledge Companion to Travel Writing examines: Key debates within the field, including postcolonial studies, gender, sexuality and visual culture Historical and cultural contexts, tracing the evolution of travel writing across time and over cultures Different styles, modes and themes of travel writing, from pilgrimage to tourism Imagined geographies, and the relationship between travel writing and the social, ideological and occasionally fictional constructs through which we view the different regions of the world. Covering all of the major topics and debates, this is an essential overview of the field, which will also encourage new and exciting directions for study.
