LC C2008-903743-X. Gr 4-8-This heavily illustrated survey starts off with a map and brief discussion of current-day Iran and the history of its languages. The following pages have an "Eyewitness"-style text, with an introductory paragraph and spreads replete with full-color photos. Chronologically organized, the sections focus on the different ancient peoples, such as the Elamites and Achaemenians, who inhabited the Iranian Plateau over the centuries. Discussions of different aspects such as religion, food, art, and politics along with photos, maps, and reproductions bring these cultures to life. A detailed glossary, index, and time line increase the usefulness of this volume. A solid overview of the period up to A.D. 651 and an interesting look at a country so often in the news, this volume shows the rich and complex history of the region.-Clare A.
