Reviews - What do customers think about Inside Asia, Volume 1 (Taschen Spring)?
Prominent map error suggests careless editing Nov 28, 2007
In the large map highlighting the contents of this volume, the Kingdom of Bhutan has been omitted, and its sovereign territory annexed to that of the People's Republic of China. (BTW, the same error is repeated in the analogous map in Volume 2.)
The disappearance from these volumes of a member state of the United Nations -- the sovereignty of which is *not* in dispute -- is disappointing, not to say shocking, particularly when neighboring Tibet -- the sovereignty of which *is* a matter of controversy -- is a focus of Volume 1. This lapse suggests rather careless editing.
