Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6–8—The first title examines the complex politics of the 12th century as it follows the life of the son of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine. It covers from his birth in 1157 through his rebellion against his father to his role in the Third Crusade. Thucydides focuses primarily on the Peloponnesian War rather than on the life of the one-time Athenian general and author of the History of the Peloponnesian War as only the outlines of his life are known. "FYI" sections throughout both texts offer additional information about the periods and individuals who had an impact on these men. Unfortunately, they read like term papers and convey little of the excitement surrounding the lives of these figures. The volumes include average-quality color photos of sites and artifacts, reproductions, and occasional maps, painting a picture of the worlds in which these men lived. These slim volumes might be useful for reluctant researchers.—Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA
