Land, Conflict, and Justice: A Political Theory of Territory

This is an incredibly important subject that has been largely ignored in political philosophy and legal theory. Kolers' book is the best writing of its kind: plausibly argued, lucidly written, and richly informed with empirical material. I learned an...

Geographic Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, Second Edition
Geographic Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery, Second Edition

Similar to many research and application fields, geography has moved from a datapoor and computation-poor to a data-rich and computation-rich environment. The scope, coverage, and volume of digital geographic datasets are growing rapidly. Public and private sector agencies are creating, processing, and disseminating digital data on land use,...

Why We Make Mistakes: How We Look Without Seeing, Forget Things in Seconds, and Are All Pretty Sure We Are Way Above Average
Why We Make Mistakes: How We Look Without Seeing, Forget Things in Seconds, and Are All Pretty Sure We Are Way Above Average

We forget our passwords. We pay too much to go to the gym. We think we’d be happier if we lived in California (we wouldn’t), and we think we should stick with our first answer on tests (we shouldn’t). Why do we make mistakes? And could we do a little better?

We human beings have design flaws.

Urban Ecology: An International Perspective on the Interaction Between Humans and Nature
Urban Ecology is the study of ecosystems that include humans living in cities and urbanizing landscapes. It is an emerging, interdisciplinary field that aims to understand how human and ecological processes can coexist in human-dominated systems and help societies with their efforts to become more sustainable. It has deep roots in...
How to Lie with Maps
How to Lie with Maps
Originally published to wide acclaim, this lively, cleverly illustrated essay on the use and abuse of maps teaches us how to evaluate maps critically and promotes a healthy skepticism about these easy-to-manipulate models of reality. Monmonier shows that, despite their immense value, maps lie. In fact, they must.

The second

Multidimensional Geographic Information Science (Geographic Information Systems Workshop)
Multidimensional Geographic Information Science (Geographic Information Systems Workshop)
This book has been a long time in the making. The origins of the ideas in this book lie in 1990 when I attended a NATO-funded Advanced Study Institute in Las Navas del Marqués in Spain on ‘Cognitive and Linguistic Aspects of Geographic Space’, organised by Andrew Frank and David Mark. After a long gestation, I started to write...

Sometimes, when I’m wandering in an art museum looking at the relics of an ancient civilization, I find myself wondering how a future society would represent a defunct American culture. What objects would be chosen—or would survive—to be placed on display? Would I agree with a curator’s choices? Were I to choose the items...
Mobility, Data Mining and Privacy: Geographic Knowledge Discovery
Mobility, Data Mining and Privacy: Geographic Knowledge Discovery
The technologies of mobile communications and ubiquitous computing pervade our society, and wireless networks sense the movement of people and vehicles, generating large volumes of mobility data. This is a scenario of great opportunities and risks: on one side, mining this data can produce useful knowledge, supporting sustainable mobility and...
