Becker provides a useful exploration of how we create representations of society -- maps, works of art, mathematical models, etc. -- and brings to the surface the sometimes invisible processes of creating them and adapting them to specific uses. He explores the differences between the communities of Makers and Users of representations. This book can help social scientists, business communicators and anyone trying to formulate persuasive arguments. It's thought-provoking for anyone who is interested in how we create and communicate meaning for others.
