These 14 essays by a top-flight cast of philosophers, political scientists, and legal scholars, display, in a critical and probing manner, the richness of Walzer’s legacy.

  9. March Series of the Month: Routledge Studies in Religion, Travel, and Tourism

    The public prominence of religion aligned to the modern growth of tourism (sometimes now claimed as the world’s single largest industry) has created a new dynamic relationship between religion, travel and tourism. It has been mirrored by expanding academic research in these areas over the last twenty years across a variety of disciplinary areas, ranging from anthropology, sociology, geography, history and religious studies to newly emergent areas such as tourism and migration studies. Such studies have also expanded exponentially in terms of the geographic spread of places, religions and regions being researched.

    This series provides a new forum for studies based around these themes, drawing together research on the relationships between religion, travel and tourism.
