More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up -These comprehensive, engaging, and well-researched sets are masterful investigations of remarkable civilizations. Exhaustive yet accessible, Society ranges from prehistoric times to the fall of Rome (476 C.E.) and includes Western and non-Western cultures and civilizations. Sixty-nine articles cover a wealth of relevant topics such as art, economy, government, military, religion, scandals, and writing. Each well-crafted piece begins with an introductory survey, then views developments in Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, and the Americas. Articles are appended with meticulous cross-references and further-reading lists that include accurate Web sites. Primary-source documents, sidebars with supplementary instructive material, numerous black-and-white photos and illustrations, and clear maps are additional highlights. The last volume boasts a chronology by region. Ancient World also presents a cultural and societal investigation of ancient Africa, Europe, the Americas, the Near East, Southwest Asia, and Asia and the Pacific. Lucid, fact-packed entries are arranged alphabetically and cover topics such as civilizations and peoples, culture, agriculture, key places, and war and military affairs. Sidebars discuss early technological discoveries, parallels between historical periods and places, and notable individuals. Color photos, maps, and time lines are striking additions. While the sets are for the same audience, Society provides more comprehensive coverage, and its language is more sophisticated. Ancient World , with its extra white space and color illustrations, will work well with reluctant researchers.-Hillary JanDonitz-Goldstein, formerly at New York Public Library
