The ninth edition of CULTURE AND VALUES: A SURVEY OF THE HUMANITIES introduces students to the history of humankind through the lens of the humanities -- language and literature, art and architecture, music, philosophy, and religion -- from the dawn of civilization to the contemporary world. CULTURE AND VALUES encourages students to place their own backgrounds and beliefs in context and consider how understanding both their own and other heritages contributes to becoming a citizen of the world in the 21st century. Coauthor Lois Fichner-Rathus continues to bring her pedagogical expertise, clear conversational style, and love of teaching to this beautifully written and illustrated book. New and revised features encourage students to draw comparisons and connections as well as engage their critical thinking skills. Chapter previews, timelines, glossaries, and "Big Picture" reviews provide consistent pedagogical support throughout the text to help students master the material.
