9780226202471: A History of the Twentieth Century in 100 Maps
Présentation de l'éditeur :

The 20th century was a golden age of map-making, and maps permeated almost every aspect of daily life. It was a century overshadowed by war which was also marked by tremendous social and technological change to which millions of contemporary maps bear witness. Most were created for a specific and immediate purpose, and have never been reprinted or discussed, until now. From the first British concentration camps to the only Nazi labour camp on British soil, and from a trench map used at the Battle of the Somme to an escape and evasion map from the first Gulf War, this book explores the cartographic legacy of 20th-century conflict, from top-secret documents to mass propaganda. These 100 maps tell many stories, revealing changing social attitudes towards the unfamiliar and unconventional, from Jewish London at the turn of the century to women in the workplace, and from the Edwardian opium trade to gay London in the 1980s. The maps cover the peak of imperial pageantry as well as rapid post-war decolonisation, and they explore technological change from the expansion of the London Underground system to 1980s computer games. This book tells the story of a 'British' 20th century, but one which has been interpreted in the broadest possible sense, culturally and geographically.

Revue de presse :

I was enchanted ... Deeply revealing as well as hugely entertaining ... If this book is a 'hail and farewell' to the printed map, it could not have been done with more verve or variety. --The Times

[This book] shows you all you need to know about the power of maps to inform, entertain and induce wonder. 'A History of the 20th Century in 100 Maps' ranges all over the place in the best possible way ... But what I really like about it is that it demonstrates the vivid ability of maps to portray human achievement and folly like nothing else on earth. --Simon Garfield, Intelligent Life

Here we see how maps have reached into every corner of people's lives, and their variety and what they have been used for over the generations is a revelation ... A fascinating meander through the journey of life in the 20th century. --Family Tree magazine

So many intriguing social and historical stories are unfolded here, in a cartographical century of imaginative, enthralling maps, rarely or never before seen. --Saga

An extremely interesting and unusual look at the history of the 20th century through maps... A wonderful collection of images, from picture postcards to propaganda posters. --Good Book Guide

Description du livre University Of Chicago Press, 2014. État : New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The twentieth century was a golden age of mapmaking, an era of cartographic boom. Maps proliferated and permeated almost every aspect of daily life, not only chronicling geography and history but also charting and conveying myriad political and social agendas. Here Tim Bryars and Tom Harper select one hundred maps from the millions printed, drawn, or otherwise constructed during the twentieth century and recount through them a narrative of the century's key events and developments. As Bryars and Harper reveal, maps make ideal narrators, and the maps in this book tell the story of the 1900s--which saw two world wars, the Great Depression, the Swinging Sixties, the Cold War, feminism, leisure, and the Internet. Several of the maps have already gained recognition for their historical significance--for example, Harry Beck's iconic London Underground map--but the majority of maps on these pages have rarely, if ever, been seen in print since they first appeared. There are maps that were printed on handkerchiefs and on the endpapers of books; maps that were used in advertising or propaganda; maps that were strictly official and those that were entirely commercial; maps that were printed by the thousand, and highly specialist maps issued in editions of just a few dozen; maps that were envisaged as permanent keepsakes of major events, and maps that were relevant for a matter of hours or days. As much a pleasure to view as it is to read, A History of the Twentieth Century in 100 Maps celebrates the visual variety of twentieth century maps and the hilarious, shocking, or poignant narratives of the individuals and institutions caught up in their production and use.
