    One thought on “The Real State of America Atlas: Mapping the Myths and Truths of the United States”

    1. Most infographics are over-simplifications. If you accept that, you can use them and enjoy them for what they do offer.I like the approach in this atlas. Most focus on what is occurring in the USA state by state, though there are enough that place the USA in a global context. There are plenty of interesting factoids on the economy, recreation, health, marriage, divorce, war, weather, the environment, etc. And, information is broken down by race, religion, politics, sex, age, etc.The graphics are [...]

    2. This book is what would happen if Jane Smiley ever wrote an atlas. Though it has the lofty subtitle "Mapping the myths and truths of the United States", this book has nothing to do with geography or balanced presentation and everything to do with projecting the authors' ultraliberal viewpoint on the unwitting reader. As a result, every single page of this book is brimming with confirmation bias. For example, the page about gun ownership in the United States is titled "gun nation" and focuses alm [...]

    3. The Real State of America: Mapping the Myths and Truths of The United States is an atlas of statistical data pertaining to the USA and how they rate with the rest against the world.This 128-page book is packed solid with references, maps, graphics, illustrations, essays and statistics. It explores the myths and the realities of Americans living in the 21st century.Topics include the wage gap, the economy, export/imports, marriage/divorce, foreclosures/homelessness, the environment, nuclear arms, [...]

    4. "The paradox of education is precisely this--that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated." - James Baldwin

    5. Amazing look at the current state of America in a way that's graphically interesting and information rich. Powerful stuff, presented in a way that's easy to understand.

    6. good format for dipping, but sadly very out of date now that crisis has been rolling for almost five years now. net foreign aid is a good map though, u.n. goal is 0.7% of gdp. in 2008 usa was 0.19% uk was 0.48% sweden was 0.99% spain was 0.43 (more that double usa).other country comparisons are mostly happenstance, most data is strictly usa. usa does lead world in arms/bombs exports (2009), with israel the best customer at $5.6 BILLION (of note, israel also is top "foreign aid" from usa (2009) a [...]

    7. This book is great. Bring it into your classroom or home. It presents lots of important information about the US with great visual diagrams.
