About World Travel Guide .com

Wade Rowland, award-winning literary travel writer and author

World Travel Guide co-founder Wade Rowland is co-founded by Wade Rowland, an award-winning non-fiction author and literary travel writer. Rowland's lifelong passion for world travel has taken him on explorations around the world.

Rowland's travel articles have appeared in major Canadian and American newspapers and magazines, and he is the publisher and editor-in-chief of the award-winning Rowland Travel Guide series of travel guide books.

He is the author of more than a dozen books including Ockham's Razor, an acclaimed philosophical travel narrative set in France that mixes philosophical speculation with commentary about the food, architecture and art of France.

Rowland's latest book is "Greed Inc.: Why Corporations Rule Our World and How We Let It Happen", pubished by Thomas Allen in Canada and Arcade Publishers in the USA. Greed, Inc. traces the rise of the corporation from the Rationalist social engineering of the 18th century - as well as the parallel triumph of moral relativism, consumerism, enterprise culture and other dominant value systems of our time. It shows how a series of psychological and philosophical misconceptions institutionalized greed and self-serving behaviour as a good thing for society. Indeed the origins of corporate culture seem in retrospect so preposterous as to defy belief - and yet these misconceived values now dominate our lives. Because of these notions of selfishness, we have arrived at a time when we seem at odds with almost everything around us.

Greed, Inc. is a groundbreaking book in that it reveals the roots of this social discontent for the first time through the lens of moral philosophy. It provides a highly original analysis with which we can begin to truly understand the cultural and moral dilemma in which we find ourselves mired at the beginning of the 21st century.

Rowland's previous book "Galileo's Mistake: A New Look at the Epic Confrontation between Galileo and the Church", about the trial of Galileo, was published August 2003 in the US by Arcade Publishers. In Galileo's Mistake, Rowland examines Galileo's confrontation with the Church of Rome from the perspective of late-twentieth-century scientific and philosophical insights into the nature of reality, in a narrative which includes stories of journeying through Tuscany and life in Rome.

Wade Rowland is a long-time journalist who has worked for the Winnipeg Free Press, the Toronto Telegram and both national Canadian television networks: CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) and the CTV Television Network.

Rowland holds a doctorate from the faculty of Communication and Culture at York University (Toronto) and teaches the history, sociology and philosophy of communications technologies in the Department of Communnication at York University in Toronto, Ontario. He is a former Maclean Hunter Chair of Ethics in Media at Ryerson University in Toronto.
