Ebook-small.jpgGeographer Mark Monmonier explores maps' restrictive powers in No Dig, No Fly, No Go: How Maps Restrict and Control (University of Chicago Press, 2010). The Press's free e-book—available at no charge only for today, Monday May 3—the book shows how our experience in the world is influenced by boundaries, both those established for a common good, like keeping sex offenders away from playgrounds, as well as ethically questionable borders, like those forcing Japanese Americans during World War II to live in detention camps.
