For Non-Western Art, Humanities, or Culture and Religion courses.

This one-volume survey provides students with detailed and systematic coverage of Non-Western art via coverage of the cultural and ideological contexts in which art was created.

Michael Kampen-O’Riley created this text to serve as the market’s first dedicated survey of Non-Western art. Rather than mere descriptions of the various styles, Kampen-O’Riley provides detailed analysis of each major style within its cultural context, through which students can derive the meaning of works of art in each style. The text also provides students with an efficient educational tool with which to study art from nearly two thirds of the world.
