The author outlines a short history of the travel writing genre, especially with regards to the changes in its structure caused by historical circumstances. The travel text Black Lamb and Gray Falcon is placed into a wider context of British travel writing between two world wars. Utilizing the terms of anti-conquest (Mary Louise Pratt) and "Montesquieu effect" (Pierre Bourdieu), the ways in which this travel text constructs the Balkans as the European Other are outlined.
