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.

Annotation: During the Ancient Greek era, doctors gained advanced knowledge of the human body. They learned how organs worked, how to identify diseases, and methods to improve treatments for people who were ill. Discover how these new scientific ideas about health and disease began to replace the traditional belief of gods as healers. This series explores the world of Ancient Greece through the works of playwrights, philosophers, and historians of the time. These works offer a fascinating window into another era. Each page features a quotation that explains a unique aspect of life in Ancient Greece.

Reviewed by School Library Journal Reviews (SLJ Reviews 2007 July)

Gr 5–7— Each book has the same one-page introduction to the ancient Greeks and a map of their civilization. An introduction to the topic of the book, 12 chapters of 2 pages each, and a time line follow. There are abundant boxed quotes from Greek philosophers and writers; photos, mainly in color; and color illustrations. The first title discusses laws, courts and juries, etc. Health includes information on plagues, the influence of gods and goddesses on healing, doctors' diagnoses, the importance of a healthy lifestyle, etc. Daily Life covers such topics as the home, getting married, children, games, jobs, and slavery. Entertainment describes parties, hunting and fishing, art, music, dance, poetry, storytelling, festivals, theater, sports, and Olympic Games. The texts are geared to younger students, but the boxed material requires a higher level of interpretation. Together, these books offer a good understanding of the lives of the ancient Greeks, but that assumes that they're all on the shelf at the same time, and that children are willing to take all four volumes. Lynn Peppas's Life in Ancient Greece (Crabtree, 2004) covers the same information in one volume.—Ann Joslin, Fort LeBoef School District, Waterford, PA
