A History of the World in Twelve Maps

How maps have shown us The World


What you see depends on where and when you are looking from.

As this 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.

Jerry Brotton examines twelve world maps from global history from the mystical representations of ancient civilizations and the medieval mappaemundi to the satellite-derived imagery of today to show how, by reading them, we can better understand the worlds that produced them. You will never look at a map in quite the same way again.
