About the Author

Jason Hansen specializes in the study of modern Germanyand is currently working on a new project which examines the impact of the development of the internet and digitalization on the future of Holocaust memory. Dr Hansen has been the recipient of awards from the Council of European Studies and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).


Hansen's book shows that mapping nationality is inherently prone to bias, that statistics can be easily tweaked, and maps can be manipulated for propaganda. * Antje Petty, Max Kade Institute for German-American Studies *
by highlighting the relation between statistics and visualization using a fitting and prominent example, Hansen provides an important contribution to ongoing methodical debates amongst historians. Understanding categorizations and the methodical basics of statistics and cartography is an essential condition for a critical assessment of maps as a medium. * Ute Schneider, German History *
Mapping the Germans is a significant addition to research on several topics, especially the role of maps in constructing modern imaginaries. * Journal of Modern History *
Hansen provides an excellent layered account of maps, statistics, and nationalism over a crucial half century of German history. * Theodore M. Porter, American Historical Review *
Hansen's monograph would make for an excellent addition to an upper-level undergraduate or, especially, graduate seminar on social studies of science or spatial history. I can only hope that this book is a harbinger of more SSS-like studies of scientific institutions, a field from which historians have a lot to learn. * Robert Nelson, H-TGS *
