More About the Author

Don Nardo is a historian and award-winning writer who specializes in the ancient world, especially the civilizations of Greece and Rome. He began as a actor and worked with the National Shakespeare Company before turning to writing screenplays and teleplays and, soon afterward, devoting much of his time to historical research and writing. In the past two decades, he has published nearly two hundred volumes on diverse historical topics. And having earned numerous favorable reviews, he is widely recognized as the country's leading writer of historical works for young adults. He is also versed in various other subjects and as a result is frequently asked by publishers to write books on a number of scientific and literary topics.

Mr. Nardo also composes and arranges orchestral music, having started composing in his early teens. Over the years he has turned out more than eighty musical works, including 2 symphonies, 4 string quartets, several concertos, a film score, incidental music for stage productions, and several commissions, the most recent a double concerto for violin and Portuguese guitar written for two noted musicians. He is also the resident composer and arranger for the Amadis Orchestra, based in Connecticut. For more information, see his official web site at www.nardopublishing.com and his more extensive biography at Wikipedia.

Format: Paperback
This is an outstanding anthology of articles about the ancient world, each article written by an expert in the age or society in question. What sets it apart from other books about the same era is that it covers more than just Greece and Rome (although it gives a fine overview of them). Also covered are civilizations in other parts of the world and their achievements in the same time period, including Egypt, China, India, Africa, and Central America. There is also a chapter on important religious developments in classical times, such as the emergence of Buddhism in India and the early days of Christianity in the Mediterranean region. The introductory article by the editor, noted historian Don Nardo, which ties togehter all these threads in one coherent narrative, is also excellent,and the bibliography is large and very helpful. I highly recommend this book for students and teachers in both high schools and undergraduate college courses.
