Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Time Life Books' superlative introduction to What Life Was Like from 100 BC to AD 200, When Rome Ruled the World is a must for older students'- and your own lesson-plan preparation. The editors vividly trace the ruthless struggle for power among Rome's leaders and the moral tone of the era; they elaborate on women's status and profile typical Roman subjects-from prefect to slave; they tell of life in the army's rank and file at home and abroad; and they describe the staged massacres that amused the masses as well as the less bloody entertainments. (When you compare the letter from a Roman outpost on P122 of this volume with that on p7 of the Kingfisher Book of the Ancient World, you will understand why it is imperative that you require students to use multiple references-at least three-when studying any topic.)
School Library Journal
Gr 8 UpThis oversized volume is filled with attractive art and artifacts. Virtually every page contains full-color photographs of mosaics, statues, murals, and everyday objects. Four chapters outline the Roman power structure and major players, the classes of citizens, discord in Caesar's armies, and the early Olympic games. Personal accounts offer glimpses into Roman life: beauty rituals, marriage customs, entertainment, superstitions, trades, and burial rites, to name a few. While the art and personal vignettes should create interest, the text may not. The small font and the lack of subtopics create a heavy look. The writing style is wordy, and the paragraphs and sentences are long. A mixed bag of excellent illustration and mediocre text.Leigh Ann Jones, Carroll Middle School, Southlake, TX
