In the twentieth century new modes of fast and cheap transport, especially the ocean liner, the car and the airplane, have transformed our way of life. The new mobility has made it possible for people to commute vast distances and move freely between places and countries to work and make a living. This book is concerned with the way "Imagined Places" in many parts of the world, as reconstructed in the memory, anchor the experiences that seem to shape the meaning of a life.
