Abstract:

"From cholera to AIDS, Dr. Koch introduces you to the people who have created maps of disease - and what motivated them to map these phenomena. He carefully distinguishes the differences between mapmaking and map thinking, making clear through his examination of maps of disease what mapmakers and map readers everywhere should consider: maps shape the way you see the world. Reading Cartographies of Disease will make you think, and make you think more carefully about how you read maps."--Jacket.
