What are THE great books on non-French cuisine?

I know what some of the must-read books on French cuisine are (Escoffier, etc) - what are some examples of the greatest, most classic cookbooks/books about cooking for other cuisines, both European and non-European?

I love cooking, and I like to think I'm pretty good at it. I'm entirely self- and parent- taught, though, and most of my experience is with either Eastern European or Middle Eastern cooking. I'd like to broaden my horizons, and learn a slightly more classical approach to cooking. I'd like to work through some of the great classic cookbooks, and while I already know where to look for the great French books (I figure I can start with Escoffier and work from there), I'd rather not limit myself to French cuisine. What are some of the great, foundational classic cookbooks for other cuisines? I'm limited to English, Japanese, or Spanish-language only, unless it has good photos or can be puzzled through with Google Translate.
