Available in Stock
The 20th century was a golden age of cartography, and maps permeated every aspect of daily life in Britain. The 100 maps in this book chart the century’s conflicts from the Somme to the Gulf War; its social changes, from the Edwardian opium trade to gay London in the 1980s; and its technological developments, from the London Underground to computer games. Beautifully reproduced in colour and supported by a richly informative text, the maps tell the story of the century.
