Short gives a good review of Korean history as well as the history of European expansion. . . . Recommended. --E. Edson, Piedmont Virginia Community College Choice
John Rennie Short has written a superb review of the cartographic history of Korea. The text is clear and the illustrations fascinating. The story of the interweaving of Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and European science is engaging and opens to the nonspecialist a vista of the fascinating interplay of politics, trade, science, and landscape. The masterful overview is punctuated by very detailed analysis of several key maps. The concluding chapter on cartographic controversies brings the story into the postmodernist debates on place making and critical geopolitics. The book is a must-have for all lovers of maps and students of China, Korea, and Japan. --David A. Lanegran, Macalester College <br><br>--David A. Lanegran
