About the Author:

Historian and award-winning author Don Nardo has written many books for young people about modern history, including studies of the rise of Hitler and Nazism, World War II, international terrorism, and dozens of military topics. In addition, he specializes in ancient history and has published numerous volumes about the histories and cultures of the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, and peoples of Mesopotamia. Nardo, who also composes and arranges orchestral music, lives with his wife, Christine, in Massachusetts.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—An engaging combination of high-quality illustrations and detailed text provides better than average coverage of life in early civilizations, beginning with an overview of the society, its origins and organization, and a map of its location and largest extent. Four-to-six page chapters describe topics of interest to students, including social norms, housing and food, family structure, education, and recreation and toys. The attractive format provides more information than is commonly found in books for this age group. Illustrations include period art and contemporary photos of artifacts and architecture. Sidebars add interesting facts and "How Do We Know?" sections describe how surviving architecture, artifacts, and texts provide evidence about the past. VERDICT Interesting and informative.
