Suitably titled, Simon Beames endeavours to collate key insights relating to the history, specialist nature and benefits of expeditions within educational settings. The philosophical underpinnings for such trips as well as the ethical considerations facing both leaders and participants in the modern era are also accounted for. Chapters, particularly those written by Stonehouse and Nightingale, provide carefully consideration for the benefits of expeditions against the costs from a financial, social and environmental context.||Publication Type:||Review||Source of Publication:||Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 10(2), p. 161-163||Publisher:||Routledge||Place of Publication:||London, United Kingdom||ISSN:||1754-0402
