The esteemed scholars Appiah & Gates have compiled the first authoritative overview of global culture to emphasize the achievement of the non-Western world. Ranging from the Abakwa Society to zydeco music, the dictionary provides a vast survey of cultural subjects from all over the world -- East Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, & Australasia, as well as Europe & North America. There are more than 1,200 entries -- on writers, musicians, deities, rulers, philosophies, literary forms -- which have been prepared by a team of regional experts from every part of the world, including scholars from other cultures.
