Travel connects people with people. It helps us fit more comfortably and compatibly into a shrinking world. And it inspires creative new solutions to persistent problems facing our nation. We can't understand our world without experiencing it. Traveling as a Political Act helps us take that first step.

There's more to travel than good-value hotels, great art, and tasty cuisine. Americans who "travel as a political act" can have the time of their lives and come home smarter--with a better understanding of the interconnectedness of today's world and just how our nation fits in.

In his new book, acclaimed travel writer Rick Steves explains how to travel more thoughtfully--to any destination. He shares a series of field reports from Europe, Central America, Asia, and the Middle East to show how his travels have shaped his politics and broadened his perspective.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, this is much more than a travel book. He is a historian and so well traveled that he can give many insights that most tourists or travelers. He studies types of government, current affairs, culture and history and hits spots in his travels that are off the well beaten path. He talks to natives and finds out how their type of government works for them and asks them what their perception of ours is. I found this book very interesting and will probably check it out again as I didn't get to finish it and look up some of his other books. I enjoy his programs on NET and NPR.
