152 pages, illustrated in color and with 2 transparent plates. "The historical relationship between the natural physical setting and the built environment is the subject of this volume. It is a subject that requires the marriage of two discipline, geography and history, both of which involve the study of change over time. Our purpose is to put these changes in context by introducing people to the history of Massachusetts in its geographic setting." FINE- HARDCOVER, FINE- DUST JACKET, ex-library withdrawn.

Sinopsis: This publication offers a visual portrait of Massachusetts - its history, its political and economic development and its people. With the aid of hundreds of colour maps, graphs and illustrations, the "atlas" traces the history of the Bay State from pre-European colonization through the 1980s and documents the evolution of the human imprint on the landscape. Using modern cartographic tools and methods - from satellite imagery to computer-generated graphics - the book presents information about the state's history and development. The "atlas" begins with a chronological history of Massachusetts that discusses Native American settlements, European contacts, the Puritan commonwealth, the royal colony, the Revolutionary and Federalist eras, 19th-century industrialization and urbanization, and the 20th-century metropolitan and postindustrial commonwealth. The book then examines the political and social landscape of the state, exploring such topics as political organization, women's experience, ethnicity and race, health care, architecture, communications, transportation and energy, and the unique case of the Quabbin Reservoir.
From Library Journal:
This handsome, oversized volume is more than just an "album" of maps. It has them in abundance, hundreds of them, from reproductions of 17th-century maps to so phisticated contemporary cartograms, and it uses them to collect in one accessible place information usually scattered through diverse sources. The often complex matters of settlement patterns, population dynamics, economic development, and political trends are here presented with clear graphic simplicity. If you need to know what constituted the colonial triangular trade or where the Lowell mill girls came from, or what the present fertility and mortality rate are, this book pro vides your answer. As in any work of such scope, there are quibbles, such as the pedestrian text and a slight overemphasis on current affairs, but there is also much to commend, especially the diversity of topics covered and the excellent color illustrations. A splendid work, sure to be much consulted in Massachusetts libraries, and worthy of serious consider ation in large libraries elsewhere.
