A major survey of the visual arts that lie outside the Western tradition.

In this major survey of the arts of Africa, Western and Central Asia, India, Southeast Asia, China, Korea, Japan, the Pacific, and the Americas, author Michael Kampen-O’Riley presents the vast range of arts that lie outside of the Western tradition.   Within a predominantly geographic and chronological framework, he explores the arts of these areas from pre-history to present day.  The first dedicated survey of “non-Western” art, Art Beyond the West is amply illustrated and accessibly written.
