Description - Under the Map of Germany by Guntram Henrik Herb
At the close of World War I propaganda mapping played a crucial role in the creation of a consensus about German national territory. This volume provides an analysis of the history and techniques of mapping in inter-war Germany, using archival documentation to chart the development of alternative concepts of national territory brought about during the Weimar Republic. The author reveals how an effective propaganda mapping network had been established and a consensus reached about the extent of the Greater German nation before the rise of Nazism. Challenging the belief that national self-determination is a just cause, this text argues that national territories are not tangible entities that can be clearly delimited, but are artificial constructs open to a wide range of interpretation.
