In this fast-paced information age, how can Americans know what's really important and what's just a passing fashion? Now more than ever, we need a source that concisely sums up the knowledge that matters to Americans -- the people, places, ideas, and events that shape our cultural conversation.
With more than six thousand entries,The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy is that invaluable source.
In addition to the thousands of terms described in the original Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, here are more than five hundred new entries to bring Americans' bank of essential knowledge up to date.
The original entries have been fully revised to reflect recent changes in world history and politics, American literature, and, especially, science and technology.
For more information about the title The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know, read the full description at Amazon.com, or see the following related books:
