            "The story of how James Cook charted Aotearoa New Zealand, lavishly produced and richly illustrated. Since it was published by the Admiralty in 1816, James Cook's chart of New Zealand has long been regarded as one of the most extraordinary achievements in the history of cartograp...hy. First Map: How James Cook Charted Aotearoa New Zealand tells the human story behind the creation of Cook's famous chart, following the progress of his six-month circumnavigation of New Zealand and piecing the map together as the narrative on H.M.B. Endeavour unfolds. It is a story of courage, dogged perseverance and Cook's extraordinary skills as both cartographer and seafarer. Scenes from Tessa Duder's evocative text are beautifully recreated by award-winning illustrator David Elliot in this exquisite large format edition. Published to coincide with the Tuia - Encounters 250 commemoration of James Cook's 1769-70 journey around New Zealand"--Publisher information.

It provides a coherent descriptive and analytical account of the key elements of the complex societies that make up the region and its component countries. Illustrated with 80 maps and offering concise entries on key issues, the book is structured thematically in these sections: South Asia in Global Context The Geographical Environment The Historical Evolution of Modern South Asia Key Issues in Contemporary South Asia The Economy Defence and Security South Asia, its Neighbours and the World. Designed for use in teaching undergraduate and graduate classes and seminars in geography, history, economics, anthropology, international relations, political science and the environment as well as regional courses on South Asia, this book is also a comprehensive reference source for libraries and decision makers focusing on South Asia.
