Publisher Comments:

This book provides an essential reading of the practices and ideas of mapping and mapmaking. It draws on a wide range of social theorists, and theorists of maps and cartography, to explore the many ways in which cartographic reason has coded our world.

Synopsis:

This book provides an essential insight into the practices and ideas of maps and map-making. It draws on a wide range of social theorists, and theorists of maps and cartography, to show how maps and map-making have shaped the spaces in which we live.

Going beyond the focus of traditional cartography, the book draws on examples of the use of maps from the sixteenth century to the present, including their role in projects of the national and colonial state, emergent capitalism and the planetary consciousness of the natural sciences. It also considers the use of maps for military purposes, maps that have coded modern conceptions of health, disease and social character, and maps of the transparent human body and the transparent earth.
