For one semester/quarter courses on Introduction to the Humanities or Cultural Studies.   Now in full color, Arts and Cultureprovides an introduction to global civilizations and their artistic achievements, history, and cultures.  The authors consider two important questions:  What makes a work a masterpiece of its type? And what qualities of a work enable it to be appreciated over time?  Critical thinking is also highlighted throughout the text with 4 different box features that ask students to explore connections across the humanities and different cultures.
