Pacific Centered Peters Map

The Peters Map has been referred to as "cartography's defining moment." It has attracted more press coverage, both praise and criticism, than any other map in history. It was featured in the hit TV show, The West Wing. Now, for the first time in North America, the Peters Map is available with one more novel, thought-provoking twist…the Pacific Ocean is in the middle. This new map "feels" quite different from the Africa-centered Peters Map. The new map brings your visual focus onto the oceans instead of the land. This map will challenge students to think about the world, and USA-centrism, in a whole new way. It provides an entree into many topics of discussion. Web-supported lesson plans available. This map was unveiled at BookExpo America in June, 2004.
