Books Info:

Going First Class? free pdf People travel as never before. However, anthropological research on movement has tended to focus on labor migration. By contrast, this volume explores a diversity of circumstances and motives towards contemporary mobility. It ranges from expatriates to peripatetic professionals to middle class migrants in search of extended educational and career opportunities to people seeking self-development through travel, either by resources, variously of finances, credentials or skills, which these voyagers are able to call on in embarking on their respective journeys. Accordingly, this volume teases out the scope and implications of the relatively privileged circumstances under which these voyages are being undertaken.
