Rethinking Maps: New Frontiers in Cartographic Theory

Edited by Martin Dodge, Rob Kitchin and Chris Perkins

Our edited book is finally out in print. Its taken a while as it started life as a session at the RGS-IBG conference in August 2006.

The book contains 12 original chapters. Unfortunately, it is only published in hardback and is tad expensive. Also, the cover is rather bland; Routledge would not use our nice design idea of a blank map.
