A History of the World in Twelve Maps – Jerry Brotton

A History of the World in Twelve Maps

“Throughout history, maps have shaped our view of the world and our place in it. In this scintillating book, Jerry Brotton argues that far from being purely scientific objects, maps of the world are unavoidably partial and subjective, intimately bound up with the systems of power, authority and creativity of particular times and places. Mapmakers do not simply represent the world, they construct it out of the ideas of their age.”
