Book Description

6 May 2003
An original and wide-ranging study of the mappings used to impose meaning on the world. MAPPING REALITY argues that maps create rather than merely represent the ground on which they rest. Distinctions between map and territory, questioned by some theorists of the postmodern, are found always to have been arbitrary. The subordination of one to the other is seen as the outcome of an ideology imposed on a more complex reality by a series of Western imperial mappings.
