This dynamic two-volume reference work is a window into the arts, performances, movements, and music that shaped the world’s cultural development since 1900. A remarkable around-the-world look at one-hundred-plus years of cultural development through the eyes of those that set the stage and stayed to play.

A handy two-volume set that makes it easy to look up 550 worldwide cultural icons: actors in theatre and film, architects, novelists, writers, creative journalists, composers, conductors, virtuoso performers, choreographers, dancers, film directors and producers, opera performers, painters, sculptors, photographers, poets, popular music figures, impresarios, television personalities and playwrights.
