    schema:description "This textbook presents a survey of global culture designed for students of humanities, cultural history, and history of the arts. In chronological sequence, it highlights the most notable monuments of the human imagination -- those works of art and architecture, literature, philosophy, and music that have been foremost in shaping the world's cultures. The author examines the development of human thought in Europe from the Classical period in Athens and Rome, through medieval France and England, along the Italian Renaissance, into Baroque Germany and Austria, and to the modern era. Each of the text's fifteen chapters is centered on a key idea related to the period being discussed and contains a series of valuable features including chapter ending timelines, maps, and boxed material examining primary sources and cross-cultural comparisons. In addition, a DVD-ROM accompanies the text, featuring a wealth of resources for both students and instructors."@en ;
