This study examines maps published by the national news press in Britain and the United States from 1945 to 1955. The author analyzes these maps to discern similarities and differences in how British and American news journals put foreign affairs into geographic perspective. Such maps were a valuable medium for educating news readers of developing Cold War geopolitical events, while simultaneously shaping public opinion of foreign places. And they reveal much about a country's world view.
