With the world facing divisive events and movements like the rise of nationalism, Trump, Brexit, Erdogan, and more, there's never been a more important time to travel.
Rick believes the risks of travel are widely exaggerated, and that fear is for people who don't get out much. After years of living out of a suitcase, he still marvels at how different cultures may find different truths to be self-evident. By sharing his experiences from Europe, Central America, Asia, and the Middle East, Rick shows how we can learn more about own country by viewing it from afar.
With gripping stories from Rick's decades of exploration, this fully revised edition of Travel as a Political Act is an antidote to the current climate of xenophobia. When we travel thoughtfully, we bring back the most beautiful souvenir of all: a broader perspective on the world that we all call home.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The book every citizen of the world needs
Rick is my life guru. It's wonderful to follow the path of what he has learned after a lifetime of traveling. It challenges you in every chapter. And listening from his own voice is an extra treat.

Should Be Required Reading
I learned more from listening to this book than I ever learned in school. I especially enjoyed this being my spouse and are permanent travelers. We really resonated with this book. You won’t waste your time falling into this read, you’ll climb out hopefully a bit wiser and very much inspired. Well done Rick. You’ve got my vote.
