9780300086935: Maps and History: Constructing Images of the Past

Historical atlases offer an understanding of the past that is invaluable to historians, not only because they convey a previous age's sense of space and distance but also because they reveal what historians and educators thought important to include or omit. This book - the first comprehensive and wide-ranging account of the historical atlas - explores the role, development and nature of this important reference tool and discusses its impact on the presentation of the past. 'This book is more than an excellent guide to the subject: it also provides a vast quarry of information on how visions of the world and the past have been warped by political and cultural prejudices ...A veritable encyclopaedia of the subject, in which every contributor to the tradition gets a mention and every technical advance is recorded.' Felipe Fernandez-Armesto, Literary Review 'Remarkably, this is the first survey in English of how people in Europe and America depicted the space in which they lived from Abraham Ortelius's historical atlas of 1570 to the latest moment.' Jonathan Clark, The Spectator Jeremy Black is Professor of History at the University of Exeter. He is the author of many books on British and European history.

Descrizione libro Yale University Press, United States, 2000. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. New edition. 244 x 170 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Historical atlases offer an understanding of the past that is invaluable to historians, not only because they convey a previous age s sense of space and distance but also because they reveal what historians and educators of those periods thought important to include or omit. This book--the first comprehensive and wide-ranging account of the historical atlas--explores the role, development, and nature of this important reference and discusses its impact on the presentation of the past. Jeremy Black begins with a consideration of the pre-history of the historical atlas: individual maps depicting the Holy Land at the time of Christ and maps of the classical world. He then examines the first known historical atlas, the Parergon of Abraham Ortel, which was published in Antwerp in 1579 and was followed by other works that mapped the world of the Bible and the classics. In the eighteenth century, there was a growing interest in mapping the post-Classical world, and works appeared that included maps of medieval Europe. In the nineteenth century, historical maps came increasingly to embody a clear political emphasis, mapping blocs of territory separated by clear linear frontiers and reflecting an approach to the past focused on undivided sovereignty and the development of the nation-state. In the twentieth century, historical atlases have both contributed to and responded to other ideologies, portraying peoples, languages, and cultural differences in an immediate and often striking visual form. Since 1945 the range of atlases has broadened to include maps devoted to the global environment, health, population trends, and other sociological, cultural, and economic changes. And the liberation of the Third World and the ending of the Cold War have stimulated a full scale re-mapping of the globe and the way it is perceived. Codice libro della libreria AAV9780300086935
