The New First Dictionary of Cultural Literacy: What Your Child Needs to Know
Third Edition, Revised and Updated
Edited by E. D. Hirsch, Jr.

Revised edition, published Nov. 17, 2004. More than 250 new terms have been added, some, of course, in the area of science and technology. Other entries cover new cultural heroes like Nelson Mandela and new cultural phenomena like hip-hop. The 3,000 entries in 21 subject areas will help students master reference skills by giving them access to a comprehensive index, cross-referenced entries, extensive photos and maps, as well as a pronunciation key for each entry.

Errata: On page xi of the forward, Dr. Hirsch says "A selection of some books that will help children learn more about the main topics we cover is provided in the back of the dictionary." There is no such list provided; we regret the error. If you are looking for recommended books, please see the publication Books to Build On.
