by Jennifer T. Roberts & illustrated by Tracy Barrett. In the wake of Joy Hakim’s fabulous A History of US, the publishers are pairing historians and novelists for similarly readable, meaty tours of more ancient cultures. Here, paying particular attention to the roles of women and repeatedly noting that the cultural and economic achievements of the Greek city-states rested solidly on the backs of farmers and slaves, the authors trace the rise and fall of Crete, Mycenae, Classical Greece, and Alexander’s empire, interspersing topical chapters, illuminating side notes, and even an interview with a working archaeologist.

This is a great introduction to Greek history for students grades 5-7 in my opinion. It should be used in conjunction with the student guide to get the most out of it. It is sprinkled with primary sources and good vocabulary resources. It is anecdotal and brief, but the cast of characters and timeline in the book are a great jumping off point for exploration in other sources. The fact that it is anecdotal helps in the practice of critical thinking. It is a wonderful way to continue the discussion of fact vs opinion in the older grades.

good shipping and price

Assigned summer reading is usually crap but this was informative and actually held my attention better than the other summer reading book " The Chosen"(Chaim Potok)

Though this book was good in a lot of ways, it was not as complete as I had hoped it would. It covered a lot of the territory that my other books covered but I was looking for more information on the Helenistic World which was influenced and as important as the Classical Period of Greece. That was covered, but I felt like I was reading a Reader's Digest of their times and culture. For those that are just beginning to explore the Ancient World of the Mediterranean, it is good, but does not hold much for someone like me that has more scholarly interests in mind.

My daughter was lost reading this book for school

A shallow survey of the history covered, it is biased to a politically correct viewpoint. I found it interesting that the book gave voice to the inaccuracies of histories biased by the view and political leanings of the writers, then proceeded to do the same.

Also, the level is younger than advertised. This would cover a scope appropriate for elementary school, not middle or high.

I give my granddaughters Barbie dolls for their fun and collection. When I give them I like to provide some background information. This book accompanied Barbie as a Greek Goddess. The pictures provided the most informative fun for them. We had read some Greek myths with good illustrations before we looked at the artifacts and ruins. All in all it was a good experience. I think I probably liked this book more than they did. But I will say that there were a lot of facts and artifacts. For the older child, 13 and up, probably more of an interest.
This book in general was a good read (or listen) with a few annoying foibles. Chief in my concern is the myopic view of history in perceiving it through our postmodern lenses. Writing this book with less irony, and tedious comments, about women’s rights, evils of slavery, and preconceptions of their science, etcetera. It would have been a good change her editors should have made. The author picks and chooses which moral indignation to comment on in an obvious feminist fashion. For instance: her repeated comments about the lack of documents regarding women in antiquity and how they were relegated to a lower class is quite annoying. And then followed with the rather apologetic comments on infanticide in ancient Greece make you wonder why the author insisted on making a political-moral statements. Minus those obvious biases and inconsistencies, it would be a good read for anyone 7th or 8th grade up.
