“In this splendid book on the growth of tourism, the reader travels with Gordon to key sites of memory in twentieth-century France. Drawing on French and German archives, Parisian police records, contemporary guide books, films, diaries, and interviews, Gordon displays a dazzling command of European history, tourism, and memory studies.”

—Elizabeth Campbell, author of Defending National Treasures: French Art and Heritage under Vichy
