Recommendations for authoritative cookbooks intended for a Western audience?

I'm looking for authoritative cookbooks associated with a particular style of cooking, intended for Western audiences. In general, the book should strive to be as authentic as possible, but make some concessions to cooking practicality or availability of ingredients in Western countries (Canada to be precise).
Examples of the type of book I'm looking for: Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, or Shizuo Tsuji's Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art.
I'm interested in all sorts of cooking traditions - Indian, Chinese, Malay, Lebanese, Russian, whatever you can think of!
