A Moving Border: Alpine Cartographies of Climate Change charts the effects of global warming on political limits, and questions the adequacy of current cartographies to represent natural change. Locating the Italian condition alongside a longer political history of boundary making, the book examines the nexus of nation-building and cartography through critical essays, maps, and unpublished documents from state archives. It shows how natural borders are the product of spatial and historical narratives—and hints at the challenges that global warming poses to Western conceptions of territory.
