Lines of Power, Limits of Language by Gunnar Olsson
Book DescriptionThis work examines the basic structures that determine the organization of knowledge and exercise of power in the postmodern world. Olsson promotes an agenda that integrates and transcends the limited/limiting language of mainstream social science and human action. By challenging the boundaries traditionally separating sociology, geography, political sciences, philosophy, literature and cultural theory, Olsson creates a new voice for the social sciences in which language is used both to say and to show, both as a topic of analysis and as a mode of presentation.

People rely on reason to navigate the abstract world of human relations in the same way they rely on maps to traverse the physical world. This work offers a critique of the way human thought and action have become immersed in the rhetoric of cartography and how this cartographic reasoning allows the powerful to map out other people's lives.
