Exploring Latin America

L

atin America covers all the Americas south of the U.S. border—Mexico, Central America, South America, and the West Indies, which is about 15 percent of the Earth. Home to well over half a billion people, the region encompasses rainforest, desert, and savanna. Most of mainland Latin America has been independent since the early nineteenth century, though some West Indian islands remain under foreign flags. The region’s economic dependence continues despite its valuable exports of petroleum, agricultural commodities, and manufactured goods. This series covers the history, economy, geography, and culture of this vibrant region to give readers a full picture of Latin America’s past and present.

Power and Religion in Medieval and Renaissance Times

rom the Roman Empire to the Age of Exploration, Europe underwent a profound transformation. The Middle Ages, once thought to be a time of superstition and social oppression, are now recognized as a dynamic period that shaped Europe’s political, social, economic, and cultural structures. As Christianity expanded its influence, secular institutions also evolved, leading to urban growth, wars between city-states, and innovations in philosophy, science, literature, and many other fields. This series traces the power struggles and religious conflicts that embroiled the continent during medieval and Renaissance times and provided the foundation for the modern conception of Europe. • Aligns with social studies curriculum standards • Covers a transformative period of European history from several angles: religion, military, science and technology, rhetoric, and more

Their actions shaped their communities and societies, from ancient Egypt to medieval France to the antebellum American South, and their stories will inspire readers to reconsider their notions of what constitutes a strong leader. • Engaging biographies will draw in even reluctant readers • Conforms to social studies and history curriculum standards 6-BOOK PRINT SET. . . . . . . . . . .

This series covers the history, economy, geography, and culture of this vibrant region, to give readers a full picture of Latin America’s past and present. • Aligns with social studies and science curriculum standards • Interdisciplinary approach addresses all aspects of Latin American society and culture

When war broke out the Allied Powers possessed greater overall demographic, industrial, and military resources than the Central Powers. They also enjoyed easier access to the oceans for trade with neutral countries, particularly with the United States. The table at the top of page 39 shows the population, steel production, and armed strengths of the two rival coalitions in 1914. All the initial belligerents in World War I were selfsufficient in food except Great Britain and Germany. Great Britain’s industrial establishment was slightly superior to Germany’s (17 percent of world trade in 1913 as compared with 12 percent for Germany).

The German chemist Fritz Haber was already developing a process for the fixation of nitrogen from air; this process made Germany self-sufficient in explosives and thus no longer dependent on imports of nitrates from Chile. Of all the initial belligerent nations, only Great Britain had a volunteer army, and this was quite small at the start of the war.

Ancient Civilizations

ur modern world, with its conveniences and technology, can sometimes blind us to the great accomplishments of the ancient world. While technological advancement may seem to be the hallmark of modern society, many of the conveniences we enjoy in the present are iterations of precedents set by ancient peoples. We owe a great deal to the philosophers of ancient Greece, the Mayan astronomers of MesoAmerica, and other intellectuals and innovators who lived in ancient times. Accompanied by stunning images, these engaging volumes capture the dramatic ascension and decline of some of the most sophisticated empires and civilizations in recorded history. “THE SERIES INCLUDES COLORFUL PHOTOGRAPHS AND IMAGES OF ARTIFACTS DEPICTING SOCIETIES, LIFE, ARCHITECTURE, AND PEOPLE OF OUR ANCIENT PREDECESSORS. … THESE VOLUMES READ MORE LIKE STORIES THAN ENCYCLOPEDIA ARTICLES. EACH VOLUME CONTAINS CONTACT INFORMATION FOR RELATED MUSEUMS AND SPECIAL COLLECTIONS.” —SCHOOL LIBRARY CONNECTION

The Age of Revolution

n the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, revolutionary movements toppled monarchies and gave rise to republics in the United States, France, and Latin America. Around the same time, the Industrial Revolution transformed economies, while Russia’s 1917 revolution represented a pivot from this revolutionary era into the modern era. This series explores each of these revolutions, from the prior political, economic, and societal conditions to the grievances that built into an eruption of popular anger and social upheaval. The immediate aftermath and global ripple effects over time are also considered.

The Geologic History of Earth

diverse range of organisms and rock formations have survived for many millennia, originating prior to the emergence of human life forms. These geological formations—some of which even predate the dinosaurs—reveal much about Earth’s climate and the types of life forms that can endure certain environmental conditions. Using fossil records and geological evidence, this comprehensive series examines all aspects of prehistory, including the ascendancy of dinosaurs and the beginnings of humankind.

The Paleozoic Era: Diversification of Plant and Animal Life

**STARRED REVIEW** “THIS SERIES SURVEYS THE GEOLOGIC AND BIOLOGICAL HISTORY OF THE EARTH. EACH VOLUME BEGINS WITH A TABLE OF CONTENTS THAT MINUTELY BREAKS DOWN THE CHAPTERS BY TYPES OF LIFE FORMS AND GEOLOGIC STAGES AND PERIODS. THIS DETAILED BREAKDOWN ALLOWS THESE BOOKS TO FUNCTION BOTH AS GENERAL OVERVIEWS AND QUICK REFERENCE RESOURCES. AN INTRODUCTORY CHAPTER INCLUDES A HELPFUL GEOLOGIC TIME SCALE CHART... SCATTERED ILLUSTRATIONS, PHOTOGRAPHS, MAPS, AND CHARTS FURTHER ILLUMINATE THE TEXT. THESE CHALLENGING VOLUMES WILL MEET THE NEEDS OF UPPER LEVEL STUDENTS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.”

Geology: Landforms, Minerals, and Rocks

M

inerals and rocks are remnants of the planet’s most ancient history and custodians of its geologic secrets. While a great deal remains to be discovered about Earth’s origins and the earliest stages of its development, much of its past is indelibly chronicled in the inorganic material that comprises its surface and transforms its landscapes. These intriguing volumes examine the basic components of the planet— from topographic landforms to the molten rocks at Earth’s core—and the geologic processes that affect them, as well as the various disciplines dedicated to deciphering these relationships.

Popular Music Through the Decades

M

irroring the youthful sensibilities of a rapidly transforming populace, rock music emerged in the second half of the twentieth century, forever altering the landscape of popular music. The new sound—which many at the time viewed as subversive— articulated the passions and beliefs of a new generation, and has since influenced a wide range of genres, from folk to disco to hip-hop. The musical stylings that have accompanied the social, cultural, and political developments of the late twentieth and early twentyfirst centuries form the subjects of these entertaining and informative volumes. Profiles of pivotal groups and artists whose lives have been inextricably tied to musical history structure the narrative and reveal the stories behind some of popular music’s most inspired creations. “THIS SERIES IS AN INCREDIBLY VALUABLE RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS INTERESTED IN THE MUSIC THAT DEFINES SPECIFIC DECADES.” —LIBRARY MEDIA CONNECTION

he formation and growth of any country involves a complex symphony of political, social, and cultural movements orchestrated by impassioned individuals. Some seek the betterment of their society while others are intent on making a more personal mark. Between the discovery and settlement of the land, the Reconstruction era, and beyond, the United States saw many such actors, including those who fought for the right to govern themselves during the American Revolution and those who fought for states rights and the emancipation of an entire race in the American Civil War. These captivating volumes survey the lives of the political figures and social revolutionaries that shaped early U.S. history.

Middle East: Region in Transition

eset by centuries of conflict, the countries of the Middle East are no strangers to friction. While much about their future remains uncertain, their individual pasts boast the robust traditions and textured stories frequently eclipsed by recent headlines. This series invites readers to journey to bygone eras and to behold the development of rich and complex societies whose remarkable cultural monuments—from the medieval Abbasid Palace of Baghdad to the ultramodern Burj Khalifa in Dubai—witnessed the Middle East’s greatest struggles and anticipate a future resplendent with possibility. • Vibrant photographs depict significant historical figures and events

God’s Word to Humanity

The Qur’an

HIGH SCHOOL

The Qur’an is the central theophany (divine manifestation) of Islam. Although most modern Muslims know it as the Holy Qur’an, many of them still refer to it as alQur’an al-karim or al-Qur’an al-majid, which can best be translated as “the Noble Qur’an” or “the Glorious Qur’an.” Composed in Arabic, Islam’s sacred liturgical language, the Qur’an is untranslatable. The name Qur’an is derived from the term al-qur’an, meaning “the recitation.” The scripture has many other names, each of which suggests an aspect of its significance for Muslims. Among those found in the text itself are al-furqan (“discernment”), umm al-kitab (the “mother book,” or “archetypal

here is something of the soul of the Prophet Muhammad in the Qur’an, the holy book of Islam that tradition holds was originally a sonorous revelation from God imprinted upon the Prophet’s heart and only later written down. If the text of the Qur’an is comparable to words heard by the ear, the soul of the Prophet is like the air that carries the sound and allows it to be heard by humanity. According to a famous saying from him (known as hadith al-thaqalayn), Muhammad said that, when he departed from the world, he would leave behind two precious gifts (thaqalayn): the Qur’an and his family. When asked by his wife ‘A’ishah how he should be remembered after his death, Muhammad replied, “By reciting the Qur’an.” The very subtle relationship between the Qur’an and the Prophet causes Muslims to feel his grace (barakah) whenever they read the Qur’an, which they nevertheless understand to be the pronouncement to humanity of the Word of God revealed through the agency of the archangel Gabriel to Muhammad, a pious but unlettered person, and uttered verbatim by him to those around him.

A man reads from the Qur’an in the Sanaa Grand Mosque in Yemen. The Qur’an did not exist in book form until after Muhammad’s death. Khaled Fazaa/AFP/Getty Images
