Mary Sponberg Pedley, adjunct assistant curator of maps at the Clements Library, discusses how "A New and Accurate Map of the English Empire in North America by a Society of Anti-Gallicans," published in London in 1755, demonstrates how jealousy, greed, and commercial rivalry can drive foreign affairs. With this illustrated talk, Dr. Pedley looks carefully at the map's sources, publishers, and historical context of intense commercial and political rivalry between France and Great Britain both in Europe and in North America.
