Publisher Comments:

Trusted by professors of the humanities survey course for over twenty years, CULTURE AND VALUES covers Western cultures along with important non-Western cultures, providing students solid, accessible introductions to art, music, philosophy, literature, and more. Available in two volumes, or as an alternate single volume without end-of-chapter readings, this text remains the most readable and reliable textbook for college and university students in the integrated humanities.

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.

Synopsis:

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.
