I chose “40 Maps That Explain the World” by Max Fisher in the Washington Post. He includes maps from a variety of topics: political, military, human rights, foreign relations, ethnicity, language, religion and more. There are maps included from the 1900’s up to present day and they come in many forms. Some interesting maps from this site include “A Russian professor thinks the U.S. will break up into these four countries” and “A European missionary’s map of Africa, circa 1908”.

    I really enjoyed looking at this blog because it provided me with a variety of interesting maps. It connects nicely to our course because I can imagine going over any of these maps in class or in a reading. One that specifically stood out to me was “The best and worst places to be born” because it was so bold.
