Description

More than a hundred stereotype maps glazed with exquisite human prejudice collected by Yanko Tsvetkov, author of the viral Mapping Stereotypes project. Peppered with hilarious essays, the atlas is a satirical encyclopedia of humankind's delusional world views, from classical antiquity and the Middle Ages to Donald Trump and the era of Facebook. Satire and cartography rarely come in a single package but in the Atlas of Prejudice they successfully blend in a work of art that is both funny and thought-provoking. A reliable weapon against bigots of all kinds, it serves as an inexhaustible source of much needed argumentation and--occasionally--as a nice slab of paper that can be used to smack them across the face whenever reasoning becomes utterly impossible.show more

Review quote

"Tsvetkov's documentation of stereotypes is both ironic and an effective contribution to cultural understanding." -Die Zeit "Not since the creation of the Asterix comics have national prejudices entered our culture in such an entertaining way." -Der Spiegel "Very whimsical, a bit provocative, quite thrilling. One laughs at others as much as one laughs at oneself." -Le Grand Journal, Augustin Trapenard "A precious geography textbook for everybody." -Telerama, Franceshow more
