Sixty million people live in Britain. Imagine sixty million. Imagine a map of sixty million. What would that map look like and what story would it tell us about identity in Britain today? Bethan Thomas and Danny Dorling have brought together this outstanding atlas to provide us with a unique visual picture of identity and geography combined. "Identity in Britain" explores our changing identities as we progress from infancy to old age and tells the story of the myriad geographies of life in Britain. Features and benefits include: over 280 full colour, detailed maps analysis of the contemporary neighbourhood geographies of people in Britain at various life stages clear introduction and how-to-use guide making the atlas highly accessible for a wide range of users locational reference maps to aid interpretation of the maps on each page Accompanying web resources, including locational cartograms Unlike conventional atlases of human geography, it allows us to see a range of data on a single map; further it allows us to easily see what social mixing does not occur as well as what does. Never before have we had such a vivid geographical picture of identity in Britain today. The atlas is essential reading for those interested in contemporary human identity and the social geography of early twenty first century Britain. It is also an invaluable resource for researchers working in a wide range of statutory and voluntary organisations, policy makers, journalists, politicians, students and academics.

"An incredibly rich source, 'Identity in Britain' includes over two hundred full colour maps based upon the data collected in the 2001 Census." urban-geography.org.uk 2008.
MOVE NICK PEARCE'S TESTIMONIAL BACK
"Thomas and Dorling's illustrative and provocative atlas, Identity in Britain, provides an important function of maps, offering a sense of where we are now, and where we might want to be. Look at it, and be thrilled by the pleasure that a new way of seeing things can bring." Helen Roberts, The Institute of Education, University of London
