From prehistory to present day, Art and Civilization tells the story of the arts in the Western world and explains how the phenomenon we now call "Western civilization" developed. A considerable amount of attention is paid to developments made in painting, sculpture, literature, theatre, music, and dance, with a full discussion of the great images of Western art and their creators. In fact, approximately sixty-percent of the book is devoted to the visual arts, twenty-percent to literature, ideas, history, and philosophy, and the remaining twenty-percent to music, dance, and theatrical presentation.
