Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
In the ancient world the term barbarian was typically used by the Greeks and Romans to describe all other populations that challenged them. The generalized usage of this term reflected both the perceived difference in cultural development of barbaric peoples and the rather high handed views of the Greeks and Romans. In reality, the barbarian people of the ancient world were civilizations that embodied groups such as the Vandals, Goths, Huns, Celts, and Germanic tribes. These individual groups each had religions, cultural mores, beliefs, systems of governance, and effective armies. Viewed as threats by the Romans in particular, the barbarian people were often co-opted or conquered and then integrated into the Empire. Eventually, as the Roman Empire waned, the pressure of nomadic barbarians proved too much to withstand and Rome fell. It is the story of these warrior tribesmen known as barbarians that is well told in this title from the illustrated "Fearsome Fighters" series. Since the barbarian peoples represented many nationalities, ethnicities, and cultures, this book is forced to cover a great deal of ground. However, even though this is a much more disparate topic than other volumes in the series tackle, it is still handled in an effective manner. Helget has produced a fine book that will appeal to readers with an interest in the ancient world and military aspects of it. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
