The Power of Maps OUT OF STOCK - TRY AMAZON

"Denis Wood's book The Power of Maps sheds a brilliant new light on our customary experience of maps....You will never look at any map the same way again." --The Christian Science Monitor
"This book accompanied an exhibit called 'The Power of Maps,' which was held at New York City's Cooper Hewitt Museum from 1992 to 1993. For those not fortunate enough to have seen the exhibit, the book stands by itself. It aims to show that every cartographer has an agenda of some kind and to assist the map user in figuring out that agenda. The writing is entertaining but a bit wordy and irritatingly full of ellipses." --The Library Journal
"Denis Wood unmasks the map for what it is: a communication tool imbedded in culture, history, selected perspectives and--yes, sometimes--bias. Even the most simple map is a highly selected, generalized, and symbolized picture of something the mapmaker wishes to communicate...The Power of Maps explodes myths, offers insight, and arms the map user with the mapmaker's perspective." --Whole Earth Review
