Synopsis: The 'Place in History' series takes an intimate look inside and outside the most fascinating and popular tourist destinations in the world. Step inside this magnificent location - learn why it remains an important building today. National Curriculum: Cross History key Stages 2-3.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-8 -These titles cover the history of their structures, how they were built, who utilized them, the daily life that surrounded them, and how they have been preserved. Unfortunately, all of them suffer from a lack of detail and raise questions that go unanswered. Most noticeably missing are diagrams and maps that would clarify the complex details of construction, design, and location. The first book begins with William the Conqueror and his building of towers but readers have to make the connection that the White Tower mentioned is the precursor to the subject of the book. Also, they are left wondering what happened when Richard II did not keep his promise to the peasants after their revolt. There are big historical jumps and there is no clear explanation of how Elizabeth I became queen after Mary or that Mary herself was a prisoner of the tower. In Giza, the time line that runs on the bottom of the page doesn't always coordinate with the information presented on that page. In Cuzco the author tries to present the various roles of the city under differing leadership (both Inca and Spanish) as well as the area today. Many details are left unexplained; readers will have no idea what the Kenko Temple is. This book ends abruptly, almost in mid-thought, with information about current farming. Each title is chock-full of good-quality, full-color photographs and reproductions and numerous sidebars that add interesting points of information. Overall, though, these books try to cover too much material in too few pages.-Edith Ching, St. Albans School, Mt. St. Alban, Washington, DC
