Review:

A great palliative for those who thought the Dictionary of Cultural Literacy was too Eurocentric. Appiah and Gates offer what they think everyone should know about Global High Culture (don't look for kitsch here), ranging across the fields of science, politics, the arts, humanities, religion, and philosophy.

About the Author:

Henry Louis Gates, Jr., is W.E.B. Du Bois Professor of Humanities and Chair of the Department of Afro-American Studies at Harvard.
