Designed for Introduction to Humanities courses, Gloria Fiero's The Humanistic Tradition is, "the only completely successful integration of non-western and western cultures, achieved by the appropriate placement of non-western elements at points in the text where they influence and complement their western counterparts. But there is more: The Humanistic Tradition also addresses contemporary issues of gender and race with sensitivity and appropriateness, using historical examples from the past as templates for the present.”—Laurinda S. Dixon, Syracuse University
