Full-Text Reviews
Library Media Connection (May/June 2013)
The series features influential western culture cornerstones that frequently receive cursory mention in textbooks, though this text is much more expansive. Formatted with colored visuals of period art and architecture, the books also include maps and phonetic pronunciations. Highlighting each spread are sidebars that expand and explain details. The concluding pages summarize the influence of the era or person on modern civilization. Though readability, format, and content are most suitable for middle school, the titles will be valuable resources wherever world history is part of the curriculum. Glossary. Index. Marion Mueller, Library Media Consultant, Starr Academy, New London, Wisconsin. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
