This volume inscribes itself in the emerging scholarship on the role of imaginaries in tourism and beyond. The authors take the reader on an imaginative journey to various (physical) 'edges of the world'. Their in-depth scholarly analyses reveal how people, in the past and today, are drawn to these peripheral geographical sites as tourists and pilgrims. Noel B. Salazar, University of Leuven, Belgium
