s the world's axes of population, power, and commerce shift from North to South and from West to East, the old Eurocentric model of culture is giving way to a new global paradigm.

Prepared by regional experts from five continents (including both scholars from other cultures and Western scholars of other cultures), the book's more than 1,200 entries include:
Chinua Achebe, Aeschylus, Bo Diddley, Denis Diderot, Martha Graham, The Great Leap Forward, Igbo, Inanna, Jainism, Henry James, John Milton, Yukio Mishima, Ramayana, Raphael, Franois Toussaint L'Ouverture, Trail of Tears, Zionism, Zydeco
