About this title


From two of America's most esteemed and influential scholars comes an authoritative guide to world culture emphasizing the achievement of the non-Western world. Ranging from the Abassid Dynasty to Zydeco Music, The Dictionary of Global Culture provides a vast survey of subjects from all over the world, including entries on writers, musicians, deities, rulers, philosophies, and artistic forms. 512 pp. Media tour. National ads. 50,000 print.


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.
