From the book reviews:
“Australia-based authors Clancy (Univ. of Newcastle), Manning (Monash Univ.), and Brolsma (Australian Antarctic Division) have produced a remarkable archive of maps of Antarctica with extensive annotation. … Annotations to each map, or group of maps, introduce fascinating detail rarely assembled in one place. … Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers.” (J. D. Ives, Choice, Vol. 52 (6), February, 2015)
“The fascinating book is about the discovery and exploration of Antarctica. … is a great read as it provides a comprehensive coverage of the story of Antarctica. It addresses a broad audience from modern cartographers as well as historic map collectors.” (bergbuch.info, March, 2014)
From the Back Cover
Everyone likes maps and maps are always used to illustrate the many books on the Antarctic. Here the focus is reversed with contemporary maps telling the story – one that should be attractive to the widest audience as it is a unique approach complimenting what has gone before and providing something different for all interested in Antarctica.
