From the Publisher:

Featuring an easy-to-use format -- with general period/style introductions followed by self-contained sections on a limited number of specific representative artistic works -- this introduction to art history emphasizes the historical and cultural contexts which help explain the works.

From the Back Cover:

One of the most absorbing and authoritative midsize survey of world art history available, this fully integrated, chronological history of art considers the historical and cultural contexts of art works from prehistoric times to the 20th century, with detailed and informative analyses on art, artists, patrons, and techniques. Covers all periods, places, and arts in highly accessible units, provides enlightening overviews on the major styles and periods, and includes boxed essays explaining the essential techniques used in works of art and architecture. Offers comprehensive 'Timescopes' for each of the 10 major periods, paralleling the chronological presentation with illustrated timelines that organize critical information by geographical area date, artworks, and key historical events. Covers many new subjects and areas, including the Jade Age in China; the royal tombs of the Scyths, Japanese architecture in the 1980's and '90's, and Chinese bronze-casting, and features a variety of new works, such art as the Ohio snake mound, a chair design by Bugatti, Grant Wood's American Gothic, Teraoka's AIDS series, plus works by Natalia Goncharova, Frank Ghery, Ross Bleckner, and more. Includes over 20 color maps, and over 700 illustrations.For art historians, general readers, and lovers of art.
