Art across Time speaks to students in a voice they will remember, combining sound scholarship with lively prose enhanced with a lavishly presented program of images. Most of the illustrations are presented in a larger format than in other art history texts to allow students to view details and elements of composition with greater ease and interest. The new third edition offers a variety of improvements, including new visual Connections between works, increased color and architectural diagrams, an enhanced map program to reinforce geographical context, new boxed readings, and a revised art program and text design.
Interdisciplinary in approach and topical in focus, the sixth edition of “The Humanistic Tradition” continues to bring to life humankind's creative legacy. With more than 800 illustrations and some 150 literary sources in accessible translations, this widely acclaimed humanities survey takes a global perspective that is at once selective and engaging, and helps students better understand the relationship between world cultures. Available in multiple formats, “The Humanistic Tradition” examines the political, economic, and social contexts out of which history's most memorable achievements emerged.
