We Take School POs
All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2008 Spring)
These books are written as travel guides to ancient civilizations ("Being a tourist in the Islamic Empires can also be hazardous"). This appealing approach encourages interest and provides cultural details in a unique manner (though it's not particularly well suited to doing research). Occasional inaccuracies are the result of oversimplification in an attempt to condense long spans of time and vast geography. Reading list, timeline, websites. Glos., ind.
