Culturescope: the Princeton review guide to an informed mind
High school ed./1995 ed., 1st ed.
Who is the ancient Greek goddess of love? Who said "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee"? What was the Iron Curtain? What's the difference between ROM and RAM? Where is the Alamo? Why are we asking you all this? Because you should know. Yes, you should actually be able to answer all these questions, because chances are your classmates can. CultureScope answers these questions and more. It will show you how all the facts you learned in high school, the programs you watch on television, the music you listen to on the radio, the movie you're planning to see Saturday night, and daily events interrelate to form our modern culture. For example, you might think Thomas Edison, the Internet, and The Iliad have nothing in common. They do. CultureScope shows you how to make the connection, with challenging quizzes, "hypertext" cross-referencing, and (if your brain is still hungry) lists of movies, books, art, and music you should check out if you want to know more. So take this book home and learn about everything from Spartacus to SPAM. About The Princeton Review The Princeton Review is the fastest growing test-preparation company in the country, helping over a million students each year prepare for college, grad school, and professional licensing exams with its courses, books, and software.
