Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

CULTURE AND VALUES: A SURVEY OF THE HUMANITIES gives readers a solid introduction to art, music, philosophy and literature. Cunningham and Reich cover both Western cultures and non-Western traditions in the humanities, including ancient India and China, contemporary India, China, Japan, Africa, and Latin America, as well as an entire chapter on Islamic art.

Synopsis:

Large course taught nationwide, but especially large in Florida, Texas, and California. Usually a popular elective but required of all incoming students at some schools. Annual enrollments in the course and current TL market share.
