Seeing Through Maps - Diversity - hardcopy
This book is used in a number of courses on Social Geography, Human Geography, Social Justice, Diversity, and Global Awareness. It provides and understanding of how ethnocentrism develops, and provides alternative models (and images) to broaden students' understanding of the world around them.
2nd edition by Denis Wood, Ward Kaiser, & Bob Abramms. The authors of this dynamic book challenge the popular world-view by questioning a number of map images and the specific messages they communicate. Maps imply a truth, but that truth can be quite skewed depending on the viewpoint of the map creator. This book takes a hard look at truth by carefully inspecting some familiar, and not-so-familiar, map images and exploring their significance.
