Gr 5-8-Condensing the history of Greece from pre-classic times to the Roman occupation in so few pages inevitably results in a less-than-satisfactory treatment. Topics such as the precursor civilizations of the Minoans and Mycenaeans, city-states such as Athens and Sparta, the classical "Golden Age," science and medicine, theater and music, warfare, architecture, religion, myths and legends, and the Olympic Games are each covered in a double-page spread. Stunning photos of temples, theaters, artifacts, and landscapes appear on almost every page. While the text contains no new information or distinct interpretations, libraries may want to purchase this title for the quality of the illustrations.-David N. Pauli, Portland Jewish Academy, OR
