Inscribed Landscapes: Travel Writing from Imperial China

An excellent anthology of the travel literature in China from earliest times. I particularly enjoyed Strassberg's selection of a few martyred writers from the Ming to Ching periods to highlight the cruelty of despots towards the literary world. The only suggestion I would have is if Strassberg could include the original Chinese script together with the translation. That way we can enjoy not only the original but understand it in plai...

Frommer's New Orleans 2011, 4 edition

Frommer's New Orleans is the best travel guide I have ever used. Whoever wrote it really understands the city. Love the Walking Tours that you do yourself, very easy to follow. Also, includes recommendations for items that aren't even on the menu anymore, little secrets of the town that only locals know. We had the best sandwich at Tujaque's for only $10 and it was big enough to share. Can't recommend this guide enough.

After reading this book I feel I am well prepared to adventure off the beaten path on my varied exploring adventures. Mr. Johnson ha...

The Rio De Janeiro Reader : History, Culture, Politics

"A great city deserves a great reader, and this one rises to the occasion. From the colonial outpost to the modern megalopolis, from emperors to the humblest of residents, this reader offers snapshots of Rio from every angle. Chico Buarque described Cariocas as 'completely crazy citizens, with truckloads of reason.' This book captures the craziness and the reason." "The Rio Reader is an excellent source of materials for the classroom...
