    A World Perspective of Art History: Ancient Art History from the First Artists to the 14th Century – Volume One provides students with a worldwide, integrated introduction to art. The book features a distinct emphasis on women, minorities, and civilizations around the world using a coordinated time sequence and comparing art in multiple cultures simultaneously. Students discover art and culture from a global perspective and are encouraged to connect their own cultures with key learnings.

    The material is presented in historical time sequences based on the rise and fall of various civilizations and how they created art and architecture during that time. Students are introduced to the early art of around 50,000 BCE and encouraged to consider why these original artists created their works. Additional units progress chronologically and show how art evolved in step with developed settlements. The book introduces great structures erected during the Bronze Age and demonstrates how the Iron Age influenced the art of ancient Greece. Students read about trade, the rise of empires, the dawn of deities, and how each of these historical developments profoundly impacted the type of art created during each time period. The final unit focuses on the end of ancient civilizations.

    Featuring a uniquely inclusive approach, A World Perspective of Art History is an ideal resource for courses in art history and art appreciation.
