Synopsis: A map is the perfect pictorial way to explain and entertain. The 80 maps inside this book achieve both of these goals and provide a detailed picture of Switzerland. Diccon Bewes' search for original maps lead him through official archives and private collections. The results are presented here, along with the fascinating stories behind them: from the circular island map of 1480 to the birth of modern Swiss cartography; from the British rail plan for Switzerland to a Soviet map of Basel during the Cold-War; from the 1970s Zurich map for men to the vision of a Greater Switzerland with 40 cantons. Map by map, readers understand how Switzerland came to be and possibly where it is going. A truly magical and engrossing journey.

About the Author: Diccon Bewes worked for 10 years at Lonely Planet and Holiday Which? Magazine before moving to Switzerland where, until recently, he managed the Stauffacher English bookshop. He is now a full time writer.
