A top-seller since it first published in 1955, FLEMING'S ARTS and IDEAS chronologically explores a breadth of humanities topics from antiquity to the present. New author Mary Warner Marien continues the text's tradition of combining outstanding scholarship with high quality art reproductions, while at the same time bringing a new contemporary voice to this classic text. FLEMING'S ARTS and IDEAS challenges students to see the links between common purposes, themes, and ideas in painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, music, and philosophy.

Mary Warner Marien teaches at Syracuse University where she worked closely with William Fleming on the previous edition of ARTS and IDEAS. She is the author of numerous articles, book reviews, and essays on these and other subjects. Her book, PHOTOGRAPHY AND ITS CRITICS: A CULTURAL HISTORY was named one of the two best books in photographic history for 1997. She recently completed PHOTOGRAPHY: A CULTURAL HISTORY (2002), a new survey of the history of photography, with special emphasis on contemporary global practice. Her current research project is an investigation of the women's movement in the late twentieth-century and its relationship to feminist art and art theory.Review:
"Fleming is the godfather of survey texts and is the standard by which all others are compared."
"Every page is a treasure of knowledge, filled with connections between the various fields of learning. My students are always inspired by the way Fleming can take complex subjects and make them seem real and accessible." "Dozens of students have told me that they sold all of their books back to the bookstore at the end of the semester--except this one. They are extremely pleased that they can now understand the things that at once seemed so foreign to them."

"The illustrations for this text are sumptuous. There's no other word for Fleming's book: beautiful. And the selections of images are the ones I would want, and more."
