Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0847678989, Hardcover)Ways of Escape provides a history of leisure and travel and a cartography of "escape activity". The author examines how pleasure has been managed from the middle ages to the present day, and examines the differences in leisure and travel opportunities for men and women. Rojek situates leisure and travel in the context of the debate on modernity and postmodernity, and uses examples drawn from Europe and North America to produce a dazzling analysis of the experience and ideology of escape in Western society.
