The New Humanities Reader is a cross-disciplinary anthology. The collection contains challenging and important readings from diverse fields that address critical issues in contemporary society. The authors contend that there is a crisis within the humanities field today due to specialisation within narrow fields of knowledge, resulting in a higher education system that produces students who lack the general cross-disciplinary knowledge necessary to become engaged students and informed citizens. This reader exposes students to ideas and research from wide-ranging sources providing opportunities for them to synthesise materials and come up with their own ideas and solutions. Features of this brand new text include: - Articles and essays are alphabetically organised by last name of writer to allow instructors maximum flexibility in organisation - Selections address significant, global issues like the population explosion, our diminishing water supply, and racial inequities
