Social Cartography: Mapping Ways of Seeing Social and Educational Change

by Taylor and Francis, Edward R. Beauchamp (Editor)

Editorial Reviews

"Editor's Note: Book News ran a review of this title in a previous issue; the review was dismissive and high-handed<-->not a good representation of the book, and not consistent with our mission, which is to provide credible, even-handed information about new scholarly books. A letter from the editor drew my attention to the gaffe, and I have extended apologies to him and to the contributors. What follows is a more accurate description." Social cartography is a new style of discourse analysis which uses graphic representation to help recognize, pattern, and juxtapose multiple perspectives. Nineteen essays, written by a multidisciplinary group of scholars, discuss the complexities and nuances of such mapping, its strengths and weaknesses in various contexts, and the potential for mapping in cultural geography, social history, comparative education, human sciences, planning, and business studies. Paulston (administrative and policy studies, U. of Pittsburgh), one of the major contributors to the emerging field, provides introductory and summary interpretation. Includes illustrations. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
