Introduction

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.
