Summary
Reveals how maps shape not only our sense of geography, but also our social, political, and even religious thinking. In the past, mapmakers have provoked assassinations, won or lost wars, and opened the ways to wealth and power. Today, they help answer the crises of epidemics and climate change. Narrated by Patrick Stewart
