For an undergraduate introductory level course in humanities.
An introduction to the world's major civilizations.
This Fourth Edition is an introduction to the world's major civilizations-to their artistic achievements, their history, and their cultures. Through an integrated approach to the humanities, Arts and Culture offers an opportunity to view works of art, read literature, and listen to music in historical and cultural contexts. In studying the humanities, we focus our attention on works of art, literature, and music that reflect and embody the central values and beliefs of particular cultures and specific historical moments.
