In Ocean Travel and Cruising: A Cultural Analysis, noted author Arthur Asa Berger turns his critical eye to the phenomenon of ocean cruising. This academically solid yet reader-friendly book brings a multidisciplinary cultural studies approach to the subject, examining ocean cruising from economic, semiotic, sociological, psychoanalytic, and marketing perspectives, and offering insights not provided by the more traditional sociological approaches to the subject. You'll explore cruise demographics, the relationship between cruising and gender, the sociology of dining on cruise ships, hedonism and pleasure seeking, the "compulsion to cruise," consolidation in the industry, the exploitation of workers on cruise ships, and a great deal more.

Travel often inspires the creation of narratives about journeys and destinations, more so with the increasing availability of online platforms, applications for smartphones and tablets, and various other social media technologies. This book examines travel blogs and their associated social media as a form of self-presentation that negotiates the tensions between discourses of travel and tourism. As such, it addresses how contemporary travellers use online platforms to communicate their experiences of journeys and destinations, and how the traveller/tourist dichotomy finds expression in these narratives. Addressing the need for more in-depth analysis through a study of blogs, this exploration of networked narratives of an individual's travel experience considers personal motivations, self-promotion, and self-presentation as key factors in the creation of both personal and commercial travel blogs. As this text applies concepts such as self-presentation and heteroglossia, it will be of interest to both students and scholars of tourism, new media, sociology, cultural studies, and discourse studies.

Let us assume that an observation Xi is a random variable (r.v.) with values in 1 1 (1R1 , 8 ) and distribution Pi (1R1 is the real line, and 8 is the cr-algebra of its Borel subsets). Let us also assume that the unknown distribution Pi belongs to a 1 certain parametric family {Pi() , () E e}. We call the triple GBPi = {1R1 , 8 , Pi(), () E e} a statistical experiment generated by the observation Xi. n We shall say that a statistical experiment GBPn = {lRn, 8 , P; ,() E e} is the product of the statistical experiments GBPi, i = 1, ...,n if PO' = P () X ...X P () (IRn 1 n n is the n-dimensional Euclidean space, and 8 is the cr-algebra of its Borel subsets). In this manner the experiment GBPn is generated by n independent observations X = (X1, ...,Xn). In this book we study the statistical experiments GBPn generated by observations of the form j = 1, ...,n. (0.1) Xj = g(j, (}) + cj, c c In (0.1) g(j, (}) is a non-random function defined on e , where e is the closure in IRq of the open set e ~ IRq, and C j are independent r. v .-s with common distribution function (dJ.) P not depending on ().


Postmarks From A Political Traveler

As spring and summer vacations beckon, this book invites and incites a whole new approach to travel. "Postmarks from a Political Traveler" is a series of travel recollections confronting the troubling topics of roots and racism, polar bears and climate change, anti-Americanism, and the war in Afghanistan. The book opens with the story of the author s experience growing up in the Jim Crow South, traveling in apartheid South Africa, and living in the post-apartheid South Africa of 2009 and 2010. It explores the not-so-dissimilar roots and racism of the United States and South Africa, as well as the cross-fertilization of ideas between the two countries. The next installment chronicles two trips to Churchill, Manitoba, where the planet s largest population of polar bears congregate each October. It recounts the dramatic changes that have occurred in both the human and the polar bear communities in just the last decade and shows how the bears have become an Arctic version of the proverbial canary in the coalmine. Then the book shifts to the author s journey back to the United States on a German freighter with a rabidly anti-American captain. Woven into this account of life aboard a long haul ship are threads of the author s travels and anti-American encounters over a decade of living in Africa and Asia. The book concludes with reflections on trips to Afghanistan in 2004 and in 2012, describing the effects of war and conflict zone politics on women, education, refugees, and aid workers. What ties these episodes together is the author s commitment to social justice and to changing the world through travel and writing that is, affirming travel as a political act."
