A cross-disciplinary survey of the history of cartography in Australia and Southern Africa which charts the trajectories of both colonial conquest and mapping technologies in both regions.

Cartography is herein revealed to be the product of powerful social formations (fiscal, dynastic, military, commercial and imperial), informing not only where we see ourselves in the world but also how our cultural, historical and economic identities have developed over time.

Author Biography: Norman Etherington is Professor of History at The University of Western Australia, a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Social Sciences and former President of the Australian Historical Association. His recent books include Missions and Empire (2005) and The Great Treks: The Transformation of South Africa 1815 - 1854 (2001).
