Summary

No place is perfectly safe, but some places are more dangerous than others. As Mark Monmonier shows in this entertaining and immensely informative book, maps can tell us a lot about where we can anticipate certain risks, but maps can also be dangerously misleading. Cartographies of Danger demonstrates how hazard mapping reflects not just scientific understanding of hazards but also perceptions of risk and how risk can be reduced. You can't afford to ignore this book's plain-language advice on geographic dangers and how to avoid them.
