       To fully understand the future of mankind, we must examine our heritage. Or as one author has written, “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.” As one who had limited Western Civilization education, this introduction is one of the most straight forward and readable resources I have reviewed.

      Beginning with a foundational understanding of the definition of civilization, the book is divided into four sections. In the first, The Mediterranean World, we examine the need for transportation, diversity and plunder; the economic, religious, and political life of early civilizations; early empires (Assyrians, Babylon, Persian); Ancient Greece; the Roman Empire and Christianity. Section 2: The Middle Ages examines the fall of Rome, rise of Islam and Western Europe; Feudalism; the spread of Christianity and the Roman Catholic Church, the Crusades; scholasticism of Thomas Aquinas and others; and the rise and growth of European cities: England, France and Spain. Section 3: The Early Modern Era surveys the Renaissance; the Protestant Reformation; the Advancement of Science; and exploration and trade. The final Section analyzes the ongoing battle between traditional Judeo-Christian faith and the new faith in naturalism. From the battle for human minds and hearts, he describes the momentous battle for political control with a historical look at the political catastrophes of Romanticism, from Rousseau to Marx to Hitler. Finally, he examines the battle for economic control from the Industrial Revolution to Socialist Mentality.

      The author takes seriously his predefined task, “to describe the institutions, politics, commerce, religion, and arts and sciences of past civilizations in an effort to discern the values, beliefs, and ideas which served to shape those societies” prior to examining the commonly held, yet erroneous viewpoints that contributed to the collapse of historic civilizations. The detailed index and chapter study questions (without answers) make this a valuable resource for teens and parents alike. 415pgs, HC. ~ Deanne

    Revised and updated by Geography Matters, Geography Through Art combines Sharon Jeffus' artistic vision with author Jamie Aramini's writing talents. While retaining the "heart" of Teaching Geography Through Art, the revision features a snazzier, easier-to-use layout, crisper type and graphics, and many additional "extras". Instructions at the beginning of the book explain the icons and new features found throughout the book, offer instructions on keeping a geography notebook, and include art tips, techniques, teaching tips and a list of basic art materials you'll use most frequently. The book is divided by continent, with a short "world" section at the very beginning. A map, continent summary and list of facts begins each chapter, detailing basic geographical information for the continent. Then, a variety of art information and projects are provided for several major countries in the continent. As Sharon Jeffus believes in hands-on learning, so a wide variety of projects relating to that continent using many different art media are suggested. Subject matter for each continent includes architecture, animals, works of art, and cultural artifacts. With each project, you'll be learning fascinating information about the culture, and enjoy photographs, drawings, and details about artistic techniques. The instructions for each project are broken down step by step, and each project also includes a list of materials needed. Also helpful are the icons throughout the book which denote the difficulty level of projects, indicate if there is a related website available for the project (links can be found on Geography Matters' website), or denote that recipes for that country can be found in Eat Your Way Around the World, if you'd like to extend your studies to the kitchen. Additionally, you may enjoy the "Quicksketches" where students can practice their sketching on a culturally-relevant subject, the profiles of famous artists or works of art, and the "Culture Connection" notes, which draw comparisons between different cultures. If you like an artistic approach to geography, or a cultural approach to art, this book's for you!
