About this title

Synopsis:

In some ways, the lives of the ancient Greeks were very much like those of people today. In other ways they were very different. This informative volume by a noted scholar introduces young readers to citizenship and government in ancient Athens; the Greek family and household; athletic training and competition; and religious beliefs and worship.

Review:

"A good place for beginning research, these books are usable as well for students who have difficulty with reading. Middle school and junior high media specialists will find these a welcome addition to their collections for their struggling readers. Recommended."
-- Book Report (September 2002) (Book Report 20020901)

"They do have a simple attractive format that makes them accessible to young audiences. Even in these brief introductions, the author avoids judging these ancient societies by modern-day values. Full-color photos, maps, and reproductions are plentiful and add interest to the texts."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)

"Befitting the series title, the book gives a personalized version of this historical movement and the cultural and political elements of the time are firmly in the background."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)

"The author presents his information clearly without fictionalizing, and offers some first-person accounts by period writers. The layout is clear and logical. An informative introduction that will have some appeal for reluctant readers."
-- School Library Journal (July 2002) (School Library Journal 20020701)

"...contains a basic, but useful introduction to the innovations of democracy and the Greeks' interest and participation in sports. The author outlines the various social classes and notes that women and slaves did not share the same political rights as male citizens. Even in these brief introductions, the author avoids judging these ancient societies by modern-day values. Full-color photos, maps and reproductions are plentiful and add interest to the texts. Serviceable additions."
-- School Library Journal (September 2002) (School Library Journal 20020901)
