A New Social Atlas of Britain Daniel Dorling University of Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK This stunning and original atlas reveals in a totally new way the complex and unexpected geographical patterns of British society at the end of the twentieth century. Based on the 1991 census and other social data, Dan Dorling uses the powerful presentation of the population cartogram to display a completely fresh view of how Britain's people work and live. The level of geographical detail revealed, drawn using local government wards, has never been attempted before in any map project. An introduction advises the reader on how to read the detailed maps and explains the necessity of using population cartograms which transform the shape of the country so that the patterns where most people live (in cities) are made visible nationally. Over 100 double-page spreads contain at least two maps made up from a mosaic of over 10000 areas each showing local as well as national distributions. Recurrent patterns can be seen to form between the geographies of different subjects as the social fabric of a nation is made visible. A New Social Atlas of Britain is essential reading for students and researchers in social studies, human geography, political studies and computer graphics, and also journalists and politicians, and all those interested in current affairs.Dorling, Daniel is the author of 'A New Social Atlas of Britain', published 1995 under ISBN 9780471948681 and ISBN 0471948683.
