German Travel Cultures by Rudy J. Koshar

Book Description

Travel guidebooks are an important part of contemporary culture, but we know relatively little about their history and importance to the evolution of tourism. Germany not only produced the first international standard for travel handbooks, the Baedeker, but also became a major tourist destination early in the twentieth century. This is the first comprehensive discussion of the history of tourist guidebooks for any modern nation.Selecting representative texts - the first Baedeker to unified Germany, guides to Berlin sex life and sites of Nazi martyrdom, a tour guide for the German worker and American tourbooks to West Germany - this fascinating study relates the history of tourist literature to the formation of distinct 'travel cultures' oriented to specific audiences, tastes and ideologies.

Histories of Leisure by Rudy J. Koshar Histories of Leisure, Paperback (April 2002)

How have leisure regimes in Europe evolved since the eighteenth century? Why has leisure culture crystallized around particular practices, sites and objects? Dealing with such questions, this book provides a historical overview of modern leisure in a range of manifestations: travel, entertainment, sports, fashion, 'taste' and more.

From Monuments to Traces by Rudy J. Koshar From Monuments to Traces, Hardback (June 2000)

Constructs a framework that examines the subject of German collective memory, which has been shaped by the experience of Nazism, World War II, and the Holocaust. This title follows the evolution of German 'memory landscapes' all the way from national unification in 1870-71 through the world wars and political division to reunification in 1990.
