What is unique about this map?Being able to think clearly and accurately about our planet-wide interconnectedness has never been more important. A Cahill-Keyes world map makes that easier. Other world maps have their own attractions, but are well-known for their distortions. Cahill-Keyes is a great map to help you understand those distortions and avoid making misleading assumptions about the world as a whole.
Continuing Cahill’s goal:
“... to accustom the sub-conscious mind of the next generation to a planetary rather than the parochial outlook and its intolerant arrogance, which today, in many lands, so threatens the peace of the world.” — 1939
