Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 6-9
Each book discusses the historical significance of its subject, how and why it was constructed, the laborers who worked on the project, and the ruling class(es) who oversaw it. The authors look at the environmental effects upon each structure over time and incorporate current career ideas for students interested in construction, design, or architecture. De Medeiros examines the optical illusions utilized to create perfect balance in the Parthenon as well as the details about construction. He explores the historical significance of architecture in Greece and its effect upon today's building methods. Pictures, maps, and project ideas bring the text alive. Matthews delves into the science of the design as well as the mechanics of how the pyramids were actually built. Detailed, full-color photos accent the text well. Spanning 2000 years of construction, Great Wall explores the importance of the wall to each dynasty that contributed to it. These books will interest browsers with their engaging photographs, environmental tie-ins, and recommended Web sites. The short sections are chock-full of information. Unfortunately, no documentation is cited.
