School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-9-These titles cover the rise and fall of the Byzantine Empire and the subsequent domination of the Ottoman Turks. In the first book, the author describes the history, culture, religion, and influences of the empire that lasted from the 4th to the 15th century. The second title traces the nomadic origins of the earliest Turks to the dominance of the Ottomans in the 13th century, the height of power during the reign of Soleyman I in the 16th century, to the dissolution of the empire in 1922. The culture, religion, social system and influence of the Ottomans are also discussed. Both of these informative overviews are clearly written and well organized. Good-quality, attractive, full-color photographs and reproductions of artwork appear throughout both volumes. Well-researched, useful additions for any collection.-Cynthia M.
