Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5–9—These books examine the "science behind the structures that are part of our everyday lives." The authors discuss the sociohistorical and mathematical concepts behind, for example, "Mesoamerican Architecture" (Monuments) and "Transportation Canals and Locks" (Dams) in great depth. These informative books are a bit dry, but ideal for dedicated researchers. Diagrams, charts, and full-color photographs are appropriately placed and well captioned. An extensive glossary and index round out each of the meticulous surveys. Though textbook layout, dense information, and vocabulary-heavy sentences limit the titles to use as report resources, they will be welcome additions.—Rebecca Dash, New York Public Library
