Faculty Book: Laurie Schneider Adams

Laurie Schneider Adams

Exploring the Humanities, Combined
(Laurence King Publishing, Ltd. and Prentice Hall, 2006; paperback with CD)

bookcoverIntended for undergraduate courses in Introduction to the Humanities, this text ignites students’ passion to know more—and think more about the influence of the humanities on their own lives with a clear, engaging writing style, striking layout, and beautiful full-color reproductions. The first introduction to humanities text in years, Laurie Schneider Adams set out to write the most coherent, straight-forward and accessible text for students. Combining her gift for writing clearly and succinctly with a breath-taking design, she makes humanities come alive for the average freshman, who may or may not pursue a liberal arts degree. Prentice Hall also provides, at additional cost, an exciting array of digital and print resources which are aimed at instructors and/or students using this text. Laurie Schneider Adams is a professor of art history at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and The Graduate Center.
