"This six-volume set, which contains all new and original entries..." "The first Dictionary of the History of Ideas was published by Scribner's in 1973-1974 and swiftly became a landmark of scholarship on European thought primarily. The NDHI extends this legacy into the twenty-first century with entirely new content on Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America, and the Middle East. With many more articles than the original edition, hundreds of illustrations, as well as profusely illustrated visual entries, the NDHI provides an expansive cross-cultural and global outlook on the history of ideas."--PREFACE.
