Each book in this series takes aspects of current research into geographical education and delivers them to the classroom practitioner. The Theory into Practice series is dedicated to improving and reinvigorating the debate about teaching and learning in geography.

Key elements of the series are: direct communication with the classroom practitioner about current aspects of research in geographical education, and how these relate to the classroom.

In geography lessons we are so busy studying bits of the world, and specific aspects of geography, that we are in danger of losing the global vision. Yet the globe is often misunderstood, and sometimes simply forgotten.

This book discusses new, research-based approaches to studying our globe, and de-mystifies world map projections.

Maps with Latitude can be recommended as a useful handbook for those seeking to improve their teaching of this important aspect of geography education- Reviewed in International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, June 2001
