The author 'here investigates the mapping of environmental hazards and how it relates to risk perception, believing that such 'an examination offers valuable insights about scientific knowledge, public policy, and popular perceptions.' Hazard maps may under- or overstate risk, depending on the map scale, the type of map, and the agenda of the map's creator. Using floodplain, earthquake, air pollution, and nuclear power maps to illustrate how errors in judgment can occur in the construction of hazard maps, Monmonier [seeks to[ show that risk perception and analysis are shaped and even distorted in hazard maps.' -- Library Journal
