Scotland: Mapping the Nation is the first book to take Scotland's maps seriously as a form of Scottish history, from the earliest representations of Scotland by Ptolemy in the second century AD to the most recent mapping and geographical representation in GIS, satellite imagery and SATNAV. Written by experts who have spent their lives working with maps and map history, Scotland: Mapping the Nation offers a fascinating and thought-provoking perspective on Scottish history and geography.

Christopher Fleet joined the National Library of Scotland in 1994. He has written and spoken widely on digital mapping and on maps of Scotland, and is a co-author of Scotland: Mapping the Nation (Birlinn, 2011), Edinburgh: Mapping the City (Birlinn, 2014) and Scotland: Mapping the Islands (2016).
