About this product
- DescriptionThis book provides a comprehensive review of the dynamic field of geographic naming through the eyes of an expert; it is a vital addition to any library's collection of up-to-date research materials. After showing the political importance of place names for military and diplomatic reasons, with special reference to U.S. experiences, Randall concludes with a survey of name disputes and examines an assortment of unusual and controversial location names.
- Author BiographyRichard R. Randall retired from his position as Executive Secretary of the U.S. Board on Geographic Names in 1993, after holding the position for twenty years. His interest in geography and place names stems to a significant degree from his middle name, Rainier; he is related to Admiral Peter Rainier, for whom Mt. Rainier was named.
