Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This title is part of the "Daily Life" series, which explores many facets of day-to-day life throughout history. This particular text thoroughly examines the rise and fall of spectator sports in ancient Rome. The fighters and their origins are described. The designs and functions of the stone stadiums or "amphitheaters" are explained. Chariot races, staged battles, and games come to life through the use of drawings and photos. The very popular public gladiatorial fights were taken over by the Roman government. But then they became too expensive, ended-up being viewed as murder, and were eventually shut down. Chariot races did continue for some time; only to follow the same fate as the more inhumane gladiatorial fights. The map in the last chapter helps the reader to visualize ancient Rome. Highlighted words and a glossary aid in understanding the text. At the back of the book, there are web sites and books listed, if the reader wishes to learn more about ancient Rome. An excellent resource for any library—highly recommended. 2005, KidHaven Press/Thomson Gale, Ages 9 to 12.

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-Nardo dispels misconceptions about sports and games in ancient Rome. He describes the origins of public games, the design of the facilities, the life and image of gladiators (male and female), public executions, wild-animal shows, and chariot races and famous drivers. The epilogue explains how the rise in popularity of Christianity contributed to the death of the games. Passages from Roman writers and scholars bring the people of the ancient city to life and add to the book's authenticity. The author does an excellent job of relating changes in government policies to the rise in popularity of sports in Roman society. Students researching the culture as well as general readers will find this title useful. Black-and-white photos, reproductions, and a map enhance the presentation. Comprehensive footnotes, bibliography, and glossary sections add to the volume's value.-Michael McCullough, Byron-Bergen Middle School, Bergen, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
