YA-- Property managers, drama teachers, and scenic artists are frequently called upon to create a stage setting from a particular time period. Even in nonprofessional theater, obvious anachronisms should be avoided. James's book offers illustrations and descriptions of a variety of items and places them in their historical context. Five major areas are covered in a visual-dictionary format: daily living, civil authority, warfare, science/technology, and religion. Even though the book was written as an aid to theater students and teachers, its clear illustrations, concise text, chronology within subject area, index, and emphasis on period detail make it a valuable tool for history students as well.
