Description - Maps with the News by Mark S. Monmonier

This assessment of the role of cartography in American journalism traces the use of news maps in newspapers and magazines and on television from the 18th century to the 1980s. Monmonier examines the technological innovations that have made possible the widespread use of maps, and assesses the political and economic factors that have inspired journalists to exploit the new technologies.
