Mapping Colonial Conquest

Australia and Southern Africa

Edited by: Norman Etherington

In Mapping Colonial Conquest, cartography is revealed to be the product of powerful social formations - fiscal, dynastic, military, commercial, and imperial - informing not only where we see ourselves in the world, but also how our cultural, historical, and economic identities have developed over time. This book is a cross-disciplinary survey of the history of cartography in Australia and Southern Africa and charts the trajectories of both colonial conquest and mapping technologies in both regions.
