From Squaw Tit to Whorehouse Meadow - How Maps Name, Claim, and Inflame

From Squaw Tit to Whorehouse Meadow - How Maps Name, Claim, and Inflame How Maps Name, Claim, and Inflame MONMONIER, Mark

Interweaving cartographic history with tales of politics and power, this work is located within the struggles of mapmakers to create an orderly process for naming that avoids confusion, preserves history, and serves different political aims. It reveals the map's role as a mediated portrait of the cultural landscape.
