Описание:

This book investigates the mechanisms of imagination about the other nations, how one might identify and locate the Self and the Other. Besides a comprehensive introduction of the relevant concepts of travel and travel writing, it represents both the overall historical context and the micro-world of three 18th-century British travel authors. Furthermore, on the basis of the Cambridge school approach, vocabularies and languages which construct both the British Self and the Russian Other are scrutinized. The study also interprets the British vision of the historical process in relation to the ideas of man and political order. It concludes that the constructions of the British Self and the Russian Other are parts of the same process, that of creation of the modern national consciousness.
