From the Beatles to the Bomb, from top-secret documents to mass propaganda, maps tell many stories, allowing us to explore changing social attitudes towards the unfamiliar and unconventional, from Jewish London at the turn of the century to women in the workplace, and from the Edwardian opium trade to gay London in the 1980s.

Authors of recently published British Library bestseller A History of the 20th Century in 100 Maps, Tim Bryars & Tom Harper, reveal how maps permeated almost every aspect of daily life in the last century.
