Travel as a Political Act
In his newest book, Rick Steves reveals how a life devoted to travel has profoundly shaped his personal view of the world...and his politics. It's also a guide to how thoughtful travel can broaden every person's perspectives, challenge outdated assumptions, and create a force for peace in the world.
