This introductory chapter first sets out the book's purpose, which is to look at how the history of cartography intersected with Europe's early modern dynastic states and intellectual and political currents of imperialism and nationalism in the nineteenth century. It tests how mapped populations in empires and nations structured borders, negotiated frontiers, and protested against the confines that Europe's maps created for them. The chapter then discusses the book's main argument; the purposes of maps for European states; and the methodology and sources used in the book. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   Europe, cartography, maps, dynastic states, imperialism, nationalism
