This positively reviewed investigation of humanistic tradition strives to lead students down a path of understanding of the relationships between world cultures. The book boasts over 800 illustrations as well as 150 literary sources all devoted to engaging learners through its presentation and organization of well-thought-out material. The author, Gloria Fiero, has developed this work, The Humanistic Tradition Volume I: Prehistory to the Early Modern World, ISBN 9780077346270, out of the expertise and background she has gathered from multiple degrees and professional experiences. With a Masters' degree in Art History from the University of California, Berkely and a Ph.D. in Interdisciplinary Humanities at the Florida State University she has made a name for herself in the education world. For more than twenty-five years she has taught Humanities, World History, and Art History. She has also used her knowledge-base and passion for humanistic topics to write and lecture on medieval and renaissance topics and the arts of both East and West as they reflect the human condition. Fiero has organized the information in this text into three sections with 19 all-inclusive chapters in all covering a plethora of topics. Section 1 entitled 'The First Civilizations and the Classical Legacy' delves into traditions surrounding Mesopotamia, Africa, India, China, and the Americas. Within this section, Greece, classical styles, Rome, and China's rise to an empire are covered. 'Medieval Europe and the World Beyond' is discussed in section 2 with looks at Christianity, Buddhism, symbolism, and Islam. Various medieval subjects are discussed as well as the world beyond the west with reference to India, China, and Japan. Lastly, section 3 closes this text by taking a look at 'The European Renaissance, The Reformation, and Global Encounter.' Chapters in this section are devoted to adversity experienced during transitions in the 14th century, classical humanism, renaissance artists, cross-cultural encounters within Asia, Africa, and the Americas as well as protest and reform.
