Review:

"The thematic chapters provide a unique, non-chronological approach to art appreciation that students enjoy."

"No textbook--of any type--that I have yet reviewed has presented world cultures in as egalitarian a manner as this text, and I am so very, very happy to see the day that this has occurred."
