Format: Paperback
The vastness of the world art subject is daunting but I believe that Laurie Schneider Adams in Art Across Time successfully covers the most crucial aspects including areas of non-western art. Such examples as Mughal Art and the Baroque or 19th Century Impressionism and Japanese Prints or Gauguin and Oceania in Post Impressionism are invaluable for their strategic placing and representation of non-western models. There are also highlighted tables throughout the book about contextual history as is the one on Scientific Experiment in the Enlightenment. Furthermore, the introductory chapter contains key issues about art as well as stylistic terminology, and art historical methodologies which are a necessary part of art history for beginners. The plates are beautiful and are accompanied at times with plans and maps that are useful aids in the teaching process. The Art Across Time, volume one and two, are extremely important to those college instructors teaching Survey in two semesters, but the volumes are also useful separately. Schneider Adams writes in a flowing discourse that is facile for the undergraduate to understand and explains difficult ideas in precise, well organized formats that are easily assimilated. To be sure there are tiny flaws in Schneider-Adams' Art Across Time, but the book comes as close to perfection as one can get given the magnitude of this area. Finally, the publisher is extremely helpful to instructors providing such teaching aids as cds, slides and the images on the web for wireless environment classroom teaching.

This book saved my life in ARH 102 at ASU. The lecture was so awful and full of inaccuracy I could barely tolerate listening to it. Luckily this book contained basically the same info as what we covered in lecture and I managed to eek out an A by 7/10ths of a percent.

Unfortunately the copy I received as a loaner from Amazon was already falling apart -- the binding was broken and several pages were nearly falling out already... After a weeks use an entire chapter fell out in a chunk. The "Good condition" rating they gave it may have been a bit optimistic.

Our professor stated this book had the best images out of all the references he has looked at. Pretty high praise I think! There are some inconsistencies though with some of the subjects and which time period they represent.

I found the book to be useful and interesting for the Art class which I needed the book for. The readings were simple to understand and follow and the illustrations were also a nice addition. Much cheaper to purchase here than at my college bookstore.

This is the book I needed for my course this semester, it costs a bit but I understand why. I sometimes wish I didnt have to buy it unless I was more into art but when it comes to a requirement for a course, I needed to buy it. So I still recommend it for people who want to learn about art history. It's an interesting book in my opinion.

More than half of the pages were missing. I found that chapter one to eleven were missing and I just decided to return it. I don't know how many more pages is missing aside from that.

This was a "Used Text" and shows evidence of use (pages dog-eared) but it's for a class and has worked out just fine for me. I don't have to stress out it being dropped! ;)

So this was a required textbook for a college class. However, the book was not dry and boring. I actually enjoyed reading the book because it was well organized and informative.
