Atlas of Prejudice: Mapping Stereotypes is a compilation and continuation of the Mapping Stereotypes project created by visual artist Yanko Tsvetkov. That's a curt, dispassionate way of saying the Atlas of Prejudice stockpiles and condenses Dude reader favorites, such as The World According to Americans and Mainland USA, According to Common Sense, plus new and even more profound mapped musings, including The World According to the Ancient Greeks, The World According to The Middle Ages, and The Flat Earth According to US Republicans, into one obnoxious, offensive, coffee table-sized paperback. Finally! It's the best and most complete collection of narrow-minded-generalizations-meet-cartography at our fingertips!

In the Atlas of Prejudice Tsvetkov's adds accompanying narratives to his 40+ stereotypical, prejudicial, and, most importantly, satirical maps. He recounts the full story of the Mapping Stereotypes project, plus offers his own assessment of the delight humanity has seemed to take in pigeonholing and talking trash about anyone deemed "not like me" since civilization began. The essays "offer an even deeper but equally hilarious perspective on our inherent tendency to randomly blame people simply because someone convinced us that they ate our breakfast."

If Atlas of Prejudice: Mapping Stereotypes is to be believed, the world didn't start its animal domestication efforts with the dog, it started them with the scapegoat.
