THE ANCIENT GREEKS

A quick survey of the highlights of ancient Greece, focusing mainly on the classical period. Each chapter is covered in a two-page spread of several paragraphs of summary, a main illustration with numerous captions pointing to important details, an inset picture and caption, and a row of captioned illustrations of related artifacts. This entry in the Spotlights series is heavily illustrated, well designed, and full of fascinating snippets of information. Though most of the information is readily available in other similar books, the cutaways of ships and buildings are especially good, and the battle maps are unusually clear. An economical look at an intriguing subject.
