This twentieth anniversary edition of Vagabond Globetrotting has been extensively revised and includes hundreds of essential web sites for travelers as well as indispensable tips, checklists, and resources.

For fans of Love Her Wild, Milk & Honey and Lullabies, the first collection of poetry and prose by Diliya R. - The Raw Vagabond. SAUDADE is a collection of nostalgic poetry and prose, of Love & Loss written by Diliya R. - a globetrotting poet who set out travelling towards the journey of rediscovery and healing, post divorce and other failed relationships. Also known as @TheRawVagabond on her instagram account, Diliya writes empowering and inspiring content about Life, Love and Relationships. A Portuguese expression that is almost untranslatable, SAUDADE is used especially with reference to songs or love poems, is a feeling of longing, of yearning, or nostalgia that evokes a deep state of melancholy, of those we loved deeply with our heart and soul that no longer stand by our side. SAUDADE also invokes a sense of gratitude of moments that occurred, which we no longer are able to recapture, and come to be remnants that we would forever treasure. Written with raw poignancy, romance, a little flair of sexuality and adventure - SAUDADE captures moments from the darkest of our nights, to the lightest of our days, that are relatable when it comes to Love & Loss. Here lies her heart's work, predominantly written in "a home away from home" in the city of London, the urban jungle of Singapore and other cosy corners around the world. Be ready to revel in your own SAUDADE and empowered by Diliya's journey of finding home - within herself.

This Great Symbol is the definitive study of the origins of the modern Olympic Games and of their founder, Pierre de Coubertin, whose ideological stamp the Olympics still bear. Behind this fascinating blend of biography and history lies an impressive framework of cultural, social, and psychological theories skilfully employed to interpret the creation and symbolism of the modern Olympic Games. Hailed as both a classic in sport history and as a paradigmatic study in the anthropology of the past, This Great Symbol helped launch the new collaboration between historians and cultural anthropologists that continues to mark the human sciences worldwide. For this 25th anniversary edition, Professor MacAloon adds a new preface evaluating subsequent scholarship on Coubertin and the Olympic origins and a highly personal afterword describing the impact of This Great Symbol on his own subsequent career as an Olympic anthropologist and cultural performance theory. This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of the History of Sport.
