Cartography expert Jerry Brotton reads the world through 12 influential maps -- from the discoveries of the "father of modern geography," Ptolemy, to the flashing pixels of Google Earth. Culling maps from classical Greece, Renaissance Europe and the Islamic and Buddhist cultures, Brotton reveals how cartography has dramatically altered how we view today's world. Beautifully illustrated with 48 pages of full-color inserts.
