Synopsis: From the jacketflap:

In 1987, the highly acclaimed book Cultural Literacy by E. D. Hirsch, Jr., described "exactly what the basics are and exactly why it is necessary to get back to them" [Newsweek]. In 1988, the best-selling Dictionary of Cultural Literacy gathered the information every adult American should know. Now, after consulting with hundreds of teachers, Dr. Hirsch defines the core knowledge our children need in order to begin understanding American culture and to enhance their progress in school.

About the Author: E.D. Hirsch, Jr. is the Linden Kent Memorial Professor of English at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville, and the author of Cultural Literacy, The First Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, and The Core Knowledge Series. Dr. Hirsch is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and has been a senior fellow of the National Endowment for the Humanities. He is president of the Core Knowledge Foundation, a nonprofit organization devoted to educational reform.
