International Travel by Speakers of Esperanto. Esperanto Documents, New Series, No. 9A.
This volume considers the value of Esperanto in relation to international tourism, and the characteristics of Esperantist tourists. Esperanto is seen as a solution to problems of language in international relations in general, and thus to international travel as well. The following are some of the general characteristics of the majority of Esperanto tourists. They are found to be teachers or office workers, male, in the 36-45 or 56-65 age group, and to have completed secondary or higher education. Their chief motivation in traveling is the desire to visit new places and to associate with other Esperanto speakers. A short bibliography is followed by an appendix containing a statistical summary of the events for 1977 as listed by the newspaper "Heroldo de Esperanto." (AM)
