The 20th Century in 100 Maps

The British Library

Drawn from the Library’s superlative collection of maps, many of which have never been reprinted or discussed until now. From a trench map used at the Battle of the Somme to a Soviet ‘spy’ map of Sunderland, this book explores the 20th century culturally and geographically, revealing the unfamiliar and unconventional. These 100 maps tell many stories, revealing changing social attitudes towards the unfamiliar and unconventional. The maps cover the peak of imperial pageantry as well as rapid post-war decolonisation, and they explore technological change from the expansion of the London Underground system to 1980s computer games. This book tells the story of a 'British' 20th century, but one which has been interpreted in the broadest possible sense, culturally and geographically.

Hardback, 228 pages.
11¼" x 9", illustrated in colour and B & W throughout.
£25.00
