This accessible history of cartography introduces us to 100 key maps that changed human understanding of the world around us, changed the course of map-making itself, or directly influenced the path of history. It reveals how different peoples have observed and represented their world through the ages, and explores the human fascination with maps. It addresses how maps have been used for navigation, exploration, wartime propaganda and planning and also to project national goals. The result is a definitive, fact-packed, fresh and lively study that readers, no matter how much or how little they may know about the subject already, will find informative, insightful and absorbing.
