About this title

Synopsis:

In less than a century, the Incas carved out an immense empire and created a great civilization in pre-Columbian South America. This volume relies on archaeological evidence and historical records to tell the story of these people, their wars, their conquests, their intrigues, their accomplishments, their gods, and their daily lives.

Review:

"Well-written, well-researched...Boxed sidebars provide additional information...black-and-white photos, maps, and reproductions highlight important points in the text."
-- School Library Journal (June 2001) (School Library Journal 20010601)

"This excellent presentation incorporates information about archeological study and projects that led to revealing the history of that area. Chapters trace this ancient land from its early settlements and agrarian societies...through the growth of city-states and empires to their demise. The text is highly readable, material is well-organized; and black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and maps are well integrated. The addition of quotes from many primary archeological sources makes this a vivid study...An extensive bibliography and list suggested reading round out a welcome and useful addition to sources on ancient cultures."
-- School Library Journal (June 2001) (School Library Journal 20010601)

"A clear and informative presentation. Six chapters cover the rise and fall of this early civilization as well as information on daily life, architecture, artisans, royalty, religious beliefs, and scientific understanding. Sidebars provide additional facts...The black-and-white photos of artifacts and sites provide additional information. A solid resource where ancient history is a part of the curriculum."
-- School Library Journal (May 2001) (School Library Journal 20010501)

"The use of quotations from primary and secondary scholarly sources provides a firsthand glimpse into the period and the personal views on a number of topics. Informative black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and maps appear throughout. A well-written, solidly researched study."
-- School Library Journal (March 2001) (School Library Journal 20010301)

"Nardo gives a sense of the change throughout the civilization's long history as well as the stability it brought to the ancient world through, among other things, its administration of law. Among the black-and-white illustrations, many works of art are reproduced...the texts are quite readable and authoritative. Well-researched, well-organized, enlightening overviews."
-- Booklist ( Febraury 2001) (Booklist 20010215)
