In the late s, critical geography emerged and gradually became a self-identified field. Although closely related, critical geography and radical geography are not interchangeable. From radical action and cartography through to radical bio-geography and zoology there are hundreds of ways in which geographers around the world are becoming more active and more engaged in the idea of fostering change for good and change for all.

From these twin positions, a more broadly based critical geography emerged that identified spatial problems of contemporary societies. The object of critique in An Atlas of Radical Cartography is not cartography per se (as is generally meant by the overlapping term critical cartography), but rather social relations. Our criteria for selecting these ten maps emphasized radical inquiry and activist engagement. This is a primarily artistic, pretty loose, and fascinating approach to geography.
