The mapmakers of old wrote “Here Be Dragons” to designated unknown and uncharted areas. Terra Incognita simultaneously shows us how much of our world we can see and map and how many dark places still remain to be explored. Most important, it is a vital tool for teaching students, researchers, and analysts how to change our mental models — our imagined maps — of the worlds we think we inhabit. Our future depends on it.
Terra Incognita take us on an exhilarating journey of the mega-trends that are remaking our world. Using powerful maps and graphics, it provides much-needed guideposts to the incredible shifts and challenges going on all around us. Ian Goldin and Robert Muggah provide a necessary antidote to the paralyzing uncertainty and pessimistic fatalism that threatens to overwhelm us all. This book offers a bold new perspective not just on the challenges we face, but how, armed with the right data and information, we can go about fixing them.

Yesterday I received Terra Incognita: I was planning just to have a first look at it in the evening, but became so fascinated and engaged that I ended up staying up to read it until 1.00 AM. I am wholly impressed by the comprehensive approach it takes. It’s a book which truly deserves great public attention as it explains cause and effect relationships in such a clear manner.’
Klaus Schwab, Founder/President World Economic Forum
“Terra Incognita is a terrific achievement. It utilises maps as a graphic foil to a wide-ranging and deeply informed argument about our current international challenges and the possibilities for future collective action. The result is both compelling and subtle. Situating the argument within the current pandemic is very powerful and timely. Essential reading—and viewing—for anyone engaged in the global state we are in.”
