Synopsis You'll find everything you forgot from school--as well
as plenty you never even learned--in this all-purpose reference book, an
instant classic when it first appeared in 1987. The updated version takes
a whirlwind tour through 12 different disciplines, from American studies
to philosophy to world history. Along the way, Judy Jones and William Wilson
provide a plethora of useful information, from the plot of Othello to the
difference between fission and fusion. It's not a shortcut to cultural
literacy, the authors write in their introduction, but it's an excellent
"way in" to the building blocks of Western civilization: the "books, music,
art, philosophy, and discoveries that have, for one reason or another,
managed to endure." Think of it as finishing school for your brain; study
up and you'll gain a lifetime's worth of cocktail conversation--as well
as a new list of books you simply must read.
