Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up-Nardo begins by placing the building in the context of Greek history and architecture. He then describes in detail how and why the Parthenon was planned, who designed and built it, and exactly how it was constructed. Information on the architectural details, such as the friezes and the sizes of the columns, is included. Sidebars offer excerpts from mythology and quotes from ancient and contemporary sources. The history of the building after the fall of the Greco-Roman civilization and current restoration efforts are briefly described. The book is illustrated with black-and-white photographs and reproductions of varying quality. Clear drawings and labeled photographs explain building and architectural terms, tools, and concepts. There is a time line, a good glossary, and an annotated list of books for further reading. While the text may offer a challenge to some students, it will be useful for those researching the Parthenon or comparing buildings from ancient times.-Margaret C. Howell, West Springfield Elementary School, VA
