Atlas of Prejudice PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Atlas of Prejudice free pdf The "Atlas of Prejudice" is a continuation of the highly successful "Mapping Stereotypes" project by visual artist Yanko Tsvetkov. Started in January 2009, the project soon became a viral online sensation. It was gradually expanded to contain more than 40 stereotype maps, which the author describes as cartographic caricatures ridiculing the worst excesses of human bigotry and narrow-mindedness. The essays that accompany them narrate the story of the project and contemplate humanity's affair with prejudice since the dawn of civilization. They offer an even deeper but equally hilarious perspective on our inherent tendency to randomly blame people simply because someone convinced us that they ate our breakfast. According to this book, the first domesticated animal was not the dog, but the scapegoat. The razor-sharp irony of the author will guide you through the delusions of the ancient civilizations of Greece and China, reveal the stupefying amalgam of superstition and paranoia of the Middle Ages and it will leave you begging for more with a grotesquely hilarious prediction about the future of Europe. "Satire and cartography rarely come in a single package but in the Atlas of Prejudice they successfully blend to produce a book that is shockingly funny and disturbingly thought-provoking all at the same time."
