Arlan Dean is the author of several nonfiction books for children.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-6 -Four interesting, fairly broad glimpses into the lives of various warriors throughout history. The first title informs readers that the samurai adhered to a strict code of conduct. The second book states that gladiators were usually criminals, slaves, or prisoners of war. The fighting men in all of these titles played precise roles in society, and their actions and behavior were limited by their positions. Engaging texts and a simple format bring these warriors to life, describing their special training and weapons and their political import. The black-and-white and color reproductions and photographs give students the opportunity to visualize specific garments, locations, and tools of the trade. Report writers and general readers will find these books both engaging and enlightening, with enough gory detail to draw in even the most reluctant readers.-Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
