Landmarks in Humanities is a single-volume survey of global culture designed for students of humanities, cultural history, and history of the arts. In chronological sequence, Landmarks highlights the most notable monuments of the human imagination—those works of art and architecture, literature, philosophy, and music that have been foremost in shaping the world's cultures. The text reflects the author's extensive background in the study of Humanities which has enabled her to craft a narrative that is at once brief and comprehensive, giving students a thorough understanding of the humanities without overwhelming them with detail. Each of the text's fifteen chapters is centered on a key idea related to the period being discussed and contains a series of valuable pedagogical features including chapter ending timelines, high- quality maps, and boxed material examining primary sources and cross-cultural comparisons. In addition, an outstanding supplements package accompanies the text, featuring a wealth of resources for both students and instructors.
