The bibliography volume of the three-volume East Looks West collates travel writing published in book form by east Europeans travelling in Europe from ca. 1550 to 2000. It brings together travel writings within each national and linguistic tradition, and fills a gap in the existing reference literature, both in western and east European languages. It will be of use to those working in the growing fields of comparative travel writing, regional and national identities, and postcolonialism. Much of this material is rare and difficult to find, even in national libraries. As a result, there are few bibliographical surveys of the literature of east European travel and self-representation, and none that are region-wide or comparative in scope.
