Albert Einstein was one of the most famous scientists in the world. He once said that his mind was his laboratory and he was, in fact, able to work through processes in his head that others had to work out on paper. In his theory of relativity, he explained the relationship between space and time. His study of mass and energy ultimately led to the atomic bomb. His work with photoelectric effect eventually led to the development of television, the laser, and photocells in security systems.

Gr 6-9-Without going into great detail, these titles provide enough pertinent information to give readers an understanding of world events during two distinct historical periods. Each book begins with background information on the subject's life and achievements, followed by individual chapters that examine the political, scientific, religious, and creative climate around the world. Sections of the chapters are marked by color-coded subheadings indicating specific continents or areas so that the readers can follow, for example, only "European" or "African" events and milestones from chapter to chapter. The volume on Einstein covers the span of his life, while Charlemagne encompasses 200 years. Full-color, captioned photographs and reproductions complement the texts. Useful resources for students needing broad overviews of these periods.-Darlene Powell, St. Stephens School, WY
