LANDMARKS in Humanities is a single-volume survey of global culture designed for students of humanities, cultural history, and history of the arts. In chronological sequence, LANDMARKS highlights the most notable monuments of the human imagination--those works of art and architecture, literature, philosophy, and music that have been foremost in shaping the world's cultures. .
. The text's fifteen chapters are unified by core concepts related to each period, such as Classicism, Christendom, or Modernism. Chapter features include "Ideas and Issues" boxes containing primary-source excerpts; "Parallels" sidebars relating images and ideas; "Beyond the West" sections highlighting influential landmarks of Asian, African, and Oceanic cultures; and chapter-ending timelines keying landmarks in humanities to major historical events. Throughout the text, high quality maps place key events and works in a clear geographical context. In addition, an outstanding supplements package accompanies the text, featuring resources for both students and instructors.
