Review:
Richly illustrated, beautifully designed, and engaging, this book offers an integrated exploration of Western civilization's cultural heritage. Readers move chronologically through major periods and styles to gain insight into the achievements and ideas in painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, philosophy, religion, and music. Offers a four color format with nearly 600 captioned illustrations in both four-color and two-color and color text features. Makes clear the effect socio-economic and political factors have on philosophical, ideological and religious ideas, and the artistic output of each period. Offers separate coverage of the cultural achievements of India, China, Japan, Russia, Africa, and the Americas.
