From the Publisher:

Accessible to students with little background in the arts and humanities, Adventures in the Human Spirit is a highly illustrated historical survey of Western civilization, carefully balanced among the major arts, philosophy, and religion, and focused on selected principal events, styles, movements, and figures including women artists. It provides a wealth of pedagogical features designed to encourage critical thinking, support writing in the discipline, and provoke discussion of topics in the humanities.

From the Back Cover:

Exceptionally reader-friendly, extensively illustrated, and engagingly thought-provoking, this one-volume historical survey of the humanities is accessible — and inviting — to readers with little background in the arts and humanities. Carefully balanced among the major arts, philosophy, and religion and finely focused on selected principal events, styles, movements, and figures, it brings the past to life by including authentic documents from daily life, comparative global perspectives, and examples from literature, philosophy, music — including the contributions of women and minority artists.
