Must read-3
Well written-3
Will surprise you how biased a map can be and what that says about its users.
Challenges the ethnocentric Mercator view of the Earth which "enlarges those areas of the world historically inhabited by whites, shifts those same areas to the heart and center of the world's stage...and minimizes the importance of what we think of as 'the South'...."
Charles Cowherd
Bizarre and polemical for a geographical tract.
