Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Argues that the supposed objectivity of the map-making and map-using process cannot be divorced from aspects of the politics of representation, demonstrating that maps have played and continue to play a major role in international and domestic politics through historical and contemporary examples. Discusses how to recognize underlying messages in world maps and atlases, the problem of mapping frontiers in dispute, and the ways in which cartographers deal with political and socioeconomic issues in maps. Also looks at major cartographic developments due to scientific advances and a greater emphasis on graphic imagery. Includes b&w and color maps. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
