This chronologically organized introduction to the Western humanities (art, music, history, literature, and drama) establishes the historical context of each era before the arts are discussed. More than 600 illustrations appear throughout the text, "Personal Perspectives" boxes bring to life the events of the day, and brief sections at the end of each chapter describe the cultural legacy of the era discussed. "The Western Humanities" is also available in two volumes: "Volume I" covers prehistory through the Renaissance; "Volume II" spans the period from the Renaissance through the present.
