Summary
Ranging from the Abakwa Society to zydeco music, The Dictionary of Global Culture provides a vast survey of cultural subjects from all over the world - East Asia, India, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and Australasia, as well as Europe and North America. The book's more than 1,200 entries - on writers, musicians, deities, rulers, philosophies, literary forms - have been prepared by a team of regional experts from every part of the world, including scholars from other cultures in addition to Western scholars of other cultures.
