This book is based on the Seventeenth Kenneth Nebenzahl, Jr., Lectures in the History of Cartography, “Mapping the Transition from Colony to Nation,” held at the Newberry Library in 2010. It considers the roles mapping has played in the passage from colony to nation—or, from dependent to independent nation-state. This chapter summarizes the general themes of the volume and the content of the eight chapters. Covering Latin America, Africa, Asia, these case studies all concern the engagement of mapping in the long and clearly unfinished process of decolonization and the parallel process of nation building.
