From the PublisherI use Hollister (note from CB: Hollister has been the market-leader for 25 years). Slocum's ability to deconstruct pieces of art and architecture from a variety of perspectives (social, cultural, political, religious, and economic added significantly to the overall feel of the text and, I think, actually makes Slocum's a better text.
Slocum does not gloss over or marginalize non-Western societies or peoples. The text I have recently used devotes little attention to Islam and Muslins in Medieval Europe...which caused me to use additional material from other sources to make up for the imbalance.
The text has a achieved an excellent level of intermixture of political and socio-cultural history...The sections on women are especially poignant and are a welcome addition...I would certainly adopt this text.
