Duration: 10 hours 47 minutes

Summary:

In this fascinating history of Cold War cartography,Timothy Barney considers maps as central to the articulation of ideologicaltensions between American national interests and international aspirations.Barney argues that the borders, scales, projections, and other conventions ofmaps prescribed and constrained the means by which foreign policy elites,popular audiences, and social activists navigated conflicts between north and south,east and west. Maps also influenced how identities were formed in a world bothshrunk by advancing technologies and marked by expanding and shiftinggeopolitical alliances and fissures. Pointing to the necessity of how politicsand values were "spatialized" in recent US history, Barney argues that Cold War-eramaps themselves had rhetorical lives that began with their conception andproduction and played out in their circulation within foreign policy circlesand popular media.
Reflecting on the ramifications of spatial powerduring the period, Mapping the Cold Warultimately demonstrates that even in the twenty-first century, American visionsof the world-and the maps that account for them-are inescapably rooted in theanxieties of that earlier era.
