From Booklist:

Gr. 7-10. Like other entries in the Great Empires of the Past series, this is a solid overview of a past civilization with intriguing examples of how aspects of the culture have survived to the present day. An introduction explaining the difficulty of writing about a society that had no written language precedes fact-filled chapters, which are divided into two sections: history and society and culture. Throughout, Somerville emphasizes the relative sophistication of Incan society, and fact boxes show fascinating connections between Incan and contemporary culture. There are no notes, and the grainy black-and-white images are uninspiring. Still, this offers a fine starting point for students researching Incan civilization. A time line, suggested Web sites and resources, and a bibliography conclude. Other books introduce ancient Rome, the Mongols, and the Islamic world, among others. Gillian Engberg
