At the beach

Jean-Didier Urbain

Urbain argues that unlike tourists, who move from place to place, beach vacationers are not seeking to explore nature, to discover other cultures, or even to "get away from it all"; rather, they are attempting to re-create their own identities through a simplified community they can no longer find elsewhere.

Blending history with social observation, Urbain presents an original, incisive, and entertaining account of this enduring ritual of escape and recreation.
