From an African mask to a Maya temple to a watercolor by the great Indian poet and artist Tagore, this richly illustrated book presents the vast and fascinating range of arts that lies outside the Western tradition.

Michael Kampen O'Riley treats Asian, African, and American cultures from their early, often prehistoric beginnings through the present day, explaining what makes each distinctive. The only one-volume overview of the subject available today, this solid, cogent work is an ideal introduction for students, art lovers, and travelers.
