E-Book review:

From School Library Journal

Grade 6-9-This well-researched history provides an overview of the first cities and empires as well as the cultures of the Assyrians and Babylonians. It continues with the rise and expansion of the Persian Empire under Cyrus II and Darius I, and the later invasion by the Greeks under Alexander. Nardo touches on the changes after the fall of the Greek dynasties, subsequent rulers, and the rise of Arab influence. Average-quality, black-and-white photographs, maps, and reproductions illustrate the readable, well-organized text. Extensive quotes from primary and secondary sources, including well-known ancient and contemporary historians, are included. A lengthy bibliography and list for further reading round out this useful resource for reports. Unfortunately, two of the three recommended Web sites are unusable. Nardo's Empires of Mesopotamia (Lucent, 2001) covers much of the same material but ends with the rise of Cyrus II. Pamela F. Service's Mesopotamia (Benchmark, 1998) includes good-quality, color photographs.-Cynthia M. Sturgis, Ledding Library, Milwaukie, OR
