    Although this was required reading for class, this textbook helped me learn the history of many cultures in our world. I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of photos of some of the particular works of art that were discussed in the text.

    The Humanities by Henry Sayre www.prenhall.com/thehumanities This is my friend's new project, The Humanities: Culture, Continuity & Change, just out through Prentice Hall Publishing. It is an innovative work, more than just a book, insynch with today's internet world of fast-paced personally assimilated knowledge.

It is an innovative work, more than just a book, insynch with today's internet world of fast-paced personally assimilated knowledge. The book comes as either two volumes, or the sections can be bought individually by topic. How many times have we been in classes that required us to purchase a book that only required us to read a couple of chapters from? What a waste!! Henry allows teachers and students the option to purchase only what they need. This not only saves students from buying unnecessary material but also allows those on a limited budget who need to purchase the whole two volumes, to break it down and buy a little at a time. What an invention! It makes you wonder why no one thought of this before now? It makes so much sense! Henry, together with Prentice Hall, have the daring idea to think first of what will best facilitate learning, rather than making the dollar sign the priority. This project is a result of their concern to present solutions to obstacles in education, and to try new things in order to make learning easier-- which means making it less expensive! Henry has an absolutely amazing gift to present history in a precise and intimate format, easy to process and remember. His research abilities as a historian and teacher for 30+ years, with a PhD. in literature, an author of several seminal books (Such as The Object of Performance) which function as critical overviews and tools for the classroom, have made him an important lecturer and art historian of our time. He writes from a heart impassioned with a lifelong love for the arts and for teaching the arts. His record proves him to be one of the rare scholars who avoids both the arrogance of verbose ambiguities as well as condescending presumptions of exclusiveness that so many write with today. He practices what he preaches, as he is weekly in the classroom living out the passion he believes in. And that passion is this: that art is important for everyone, to enrich our lives and develop us as human beings. He has been an active supporter of the early careers of such artists as Carolee Schneeman, Eleanor Antin, David Antin, Christo, Goat Island, Laurie Anderson, Bill Viola, and thousands of unnamed students across the globe, including myself. He continues to play an active role in his local community as a professor, lecturer, and supporter of the arts. It is always a source of hope in this world, where the arts continue to struggle to survive, when we bump into a person as genuine and as giving as Henry Sayre. Consider this book to learn more about the humanities. I'm sure you will not be disappointed in what it has to offer: its flexibility, the ton of available accurate information it offers, its detailed organization of tools and references, and itself as a body of work developed with the special attention an artist gives to a masterpiece. Every detail has been attended to with loving concern to facilitate the reader's easy access to the information it holds. View the video of Henry speaking about it in his own words (much better than mine!). Thanks for letting me do a little advertising for my friend here. Now---go visit his site and let him know you did so. He deserves a round of applause for all the work that went into this project. Thanks!
