Summary
  • What you see depends on where and when you are looking from. As Jerry Brotton's enthralling book shows, maps have shaped our view of the world throughout history, and are themselves shaped by the ideas, prejudices, systems of power and creativity of their age. Brotton examines twelve world maps from global history from the mystical representations of ancient civilizations and the fourteenth-century Mappamundi to the satellite-derived imagery of today to show how, by reading them, we can better understand the worlds that produced them. You will not look at a map in quite the same way again
