Summary: Exceptionally reader-friendly, extensively illustrated, and engagingly thought-provoking, this one-volume historical survey of the humanities is accessible -- and inviting -- to readers with little background in the arts and humanities. Carefully balanced among the major arts, philosophy, and religion and finely focused on selected principal events, styles, movements, and figures, it brings the past to life by including authentic documents from daily life, comparative
global perspectives, and examples from literature, philosophy, music -- including the contributions of women and minority artists. A wealth of critical thinking, writing, and discussion activities helps readers make aesthetic and philosophical judgments, synthesize and compare topics, and discover the humanities' rich connections to their own lives. KEY TOPICS: The author addresses the humanities within Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, The Judeo-Christian spirit, the early Middle Ages, the late Middle Ages, the Renaissance spirit in Italy, the Northern and late Renaissance, the spirit of Baroque, the spirit of enlightenment, revolution and romanticism, the Industrial Age, the spirit of Modernism and the contemporary spirit. MARKET: For those seeking a historical survey of the humanities.
