Lorinc draws fascinating parallels between ancient and contemporary cities, but he does not spend enough time discussing positive urban elements, such as arts and culture. Each volume begins with a snapshot look at an ancient civilization, then reveals the history of its archaeological site.\n Twenty-First Century LE ISBN 978-0-8225-8667-8 $38.60 (4) YA Dictatorships series. In each revised and updated book, thirteen double-page spreads with one photo per page cover topics such as landmarks (natural and man-made), dress (traditional and modern), homes, transportation, and leisure activities. With clear text and well-reproduced photos, this overview highlights New Zealand's spectacular scenery, unique wildlife, conflicts between the indigenous Maori people and the European settlers, and unusual home-grown sports such as zorbing and bungee jumping. From the orange of Uluru (Ayers Rock) and green eucalyptus leaves to the white of the Sydney Opera House and brown Vegemite, Australia's colorful geography and culture are presented through a series of snapshots with superficial accompanying text.
