In this book, the reader is transported down a "time tunnel" to Aztec times, asked to choose an identity and given information on all aspects of life in that time in an original, interactive way. A rating is given at the end of the book to see whether the reader really would have survived. A colour poster is included inside the jacket. This book is part of a series created and designed by David Salariya. A wide range of titles is planned for the series which will bring new life and interest into history for readers of all ages.

Gr. 4^-7. As the title indicates, this book in the How Would You Survive? series attempts to close the gap between an ancient civilization and the reader. General categories of historical anthropology are made specific: "What would you eat and drink?" "What would you wear?" Since the double-page spreads feature central blocks of text, complemented by large illustrations and other brief facts and small pictures in the margins, the book will attract readers with both sustained and short attention spans. The initial time line (called a "time spiral" here) is markedly British, but the rest of the text is broader in appeal, offering very specific answers to daily-life questions. Comparable titles covering Egyptian, Viking, and Roman societies appear in the Series Roundup in this issue. Mary Harris Veeder
