  • The King's Two Mapsby Daniel Birkholz

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 54.95

    While a culture may have a dominant way of "mapping," its geography is always plural, and there is always competition among conceptions of space.

This book chronicles the specific... more...

  • Mapping Latin Americaby Jordana Dym; Karl Offen

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 43.00

But maps reveal much more: to really read a map means to examine what it shows and what it doesn?t, and to ask who made it, why, and for whom. The contributors to this new volume ask these sorts of questions... more...
