Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Adult/High School-An excellent resource for world history classes. Following an interesting background essay, color photographs and maps and a readable text examine more than 30 large empires, arranged chronologically from Akkad through the Soviet Bloc and the place of empire in post-9/11 society. Each one receives four or six pages, with half the space devoted to graphics. The role of leaders in developing these large nations is emphasized. The maps, many of which are not available in traditional school resources, use color, cross-hatching, and text to show growth and change, and indicate topographical relief. Time lines run horizontally along the bottom of the opening pages of each section; boxes provide cultural trivia.-Claudia Moore, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews

Each page integrates text with maps, photos, and timelines. Oversize: 9x12<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
