"In vividly observed case studies, this book presents a living, lacy meshwork of cartographies stretching across the MENA region. The authors extend mapping to a wide range of practices, bureaucratic and embodied, imperial and grassroots, to generate trenchant redefinitions of both media and nation-building."

"This edited volume addresses an original topic. Bringing together analyses on various locations in the Middle East and North Africa, it aims for an open, dynamic understanding of 'area' not as given, but as set of spaces that is constantly reimagined and produced."
