Notable to the 13th edition of this celebrated textbook is the upgrading of a large percentage of the images around which the text is based. Professors accustomed to the 12th edition will be relieved to learn that the content and its organization have not been altered. The volume includes online access to a site where students can find flashcards, visual compare and contrast examples, links to Google earth coordinates, interactive maps, video clips, and practice tips, among other study aids. The art of western Europe, which was the basis for the original Gardner History, is now interspersed with chapters on the art and architecture of South and Southeast Asia, China and Korea, Japan, Oceania, Africa, the Islamic world, and Native American art. Many maps and inset boxes, as well as an accompanying fold-out timeline are included. Earlier editions are cited in Resources for College Libraries.
