"Over 300 maps combining cultural and political phenomena create an exciting new perspective on major art events from 40,000 B.C. to the present. Each pair of pages presents a thesis, showing how geography affected the art of an era. The visual presentation of the paths of invasion and migration, as well as the location of natural resources used in art, reveals art history in fresh ways. Succinct text and reproductions of sample works of art make this a strong addition to any collection with a focus on art or an interdisciplinary approach to history"--"Reference that rocks, " American Libraries, May 2005.
