worth getting for a class or just for reading :)  March 16, 2011

I used this textbook for a class. The textbook is very interesting and informative, with many color pictures of the art and architecture discussed. It also discusses literature, philosophy, and the history of science. The graphic layout of the book is excellent and there are many reading selections of literature and philosophy. If you take a humanities class this is a good resource for your research papers.






The Humanistic Tradition, Book 1: The First Civilizations and the Classical Legacy: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
