About the Author:

NORMAN BANCROFT HUNT graduated from Kingston School of Art in 1968. He was elected fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute in 1975 and is currently a lecturer and researcher in visual theory and cultural studies at the Kent Institute of Art and Design. As an author he has written numerous books about Native American art and culture, including the award-winning 'People of the Totem'.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6–10—These volumes provide overviews of the civilizations, a time line, a topographical map, and a satellite photograph. The chapters that follow are chock-full of information on class structure, political life, social customs, and daily habits, but not all of the claims can be proven. For example, Egypt states that the civilization's wall paintings show how "...of all the ancient cultures, Egyptians were the most fun," casting doubt on how well researched the text might be. Additionally, the books have no citations or bibliographies, and because entries are written in the present tense, readers may confuse the periods of the various civilizations. The distinct differences that existed, for example, between the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire are lost. The colorful illustrations show the houses, towns, and markets in detail, but the quality of these and of the artifact photos do not redeem the texts. There are many better books on all of these topics.—Clare A. Dombrowski, Amesbury Public Library, MA
