"Earthbound people are not able to include greater than a tiny a part of the planetary floor. yet of their mind's eye they could take hold of the full of the earth, as a floor or a great physique, to find it inside infinities of house and to speak and proportion photos of it."―from the Preface

lengthy earlier than we had the power to picture the earth from space―to see our planet because it will be noticeable via the Greek god Apollo―images of the earth as a globe had captured renowned mind's eye. In Apollo's Eye, geographer Denis Cosgrove examines the ancient implications for the West of conceiving and representing the earth as a globe: a unified, round physique. Cosgrove strains how principles of globalism and globalization have shifted traditionally when it comes to altering photographs of the earth, from antiquity to the gap Age. He connects the evolving snapshot of a unified globe to politically robust conceptions of human unity.
