Example text

It was not always thus. Before tourism there was travel, and before travel there was exploration. Each is roughly assignable to its own age in modern history: exploration belongs to the Renaissance, travel to the bourgeois age, tourism to our proletarian moment. But there are obvious overlaps. What we recognize as tourism in its contemporary form was making inroads on travel as early as the mid-nineteenth century, when Thomas Cook got the bright idea of shipping sightseeing groups to the Continent, and though the Renaissance is over, there are still a few explorers.

In London there are no touts: it's easier there to make a living without the constant fear of humiliating rebuff. On the other hand, there are none in Papua New Guinea either. It is not yet sufficiently "developed," which means it doesn't yet have a sense of a richer outside world which can be tapped. In the same way, your real native of a truly primitive place doesn't steal from tourists. Not out of primitive virtue but out of ignorance: unlike a resident of, say, Naples, he doesn't know what incredible riches repose in tourists' luggage and handbags.

To every such passport . . " This was something new. Literary theorists searching for the springs of "modernism" are likely to look too high, to inquire into subtle movements of the intellect or to go haring after Hegel and Nietzsche and Freud and Heidegger and Wittgenstein. There's another way of going about it, and that is to pay less attention to the presumed intellectual causes of unprecedented events than to the fact that they occur. Once they occur, people have to live with them, and living with them requires unique adjustments and reactions.
