Seeing Through Maps - book * Buy this book from Longitude Maps
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.
