This is a "must have" for teachers and could be used as a reader for students thirteen and older. Dorothy Harrer's understanding of the imaginative capacities of children combines with skillful story telling to carry the reader to lands far away and long ago.

Representative Chapters in Ancient History is not just another set of reference books or an attempt to completely summarize the ancient world. It is meant to be read as a lively and realistic portrait of classical antiquity. These books represent eras of ancient history at a level of detail usually reserved for full scale accounts, making it a great text both for college students and for the general reader. The approach is evolutionary. Students are given a thorough grounding in the origin and development of the major ancient Mediterranean civilizations so that later development can be more easily understood. The books move from agriculture, Egypt, Greece, early Rome, to the historical Jesus. The last two chapters use Justinian to look at Byzantium. This thorough and detailed account will inevitably inspire students to read more on their own and become engaged in this fascinating history. (Sold Only as a Set)

In order to present the Aramean history during some six hundred years, down to the seventh century B.C., it was necessary to analyze a wide range of sources, mainly cuneiform, epigraphic, and biblical. Chapter I deals with Aramean pre-history and proto-history, while chapter II examines the question of the alleged relationship between the Hebrew forefathers and the ancient Arameans. Chapters III to XIV give a relatively accurate description of the territory of each historically attested Aramean group or state and present a detailed narrative of political events. Chapter XIV, the most extensive, considers the situation of the Arameans in Babylonia, also in relation to the Chaldeans and to the North-Arabian tribes. Chapters XV to XVIII deal with Aramean institutions, economy, legal practices, and religion. Special attention is paid to linguistic features of the available evidence, when they can help resolving historical questions. The book concludes with an extensive general index and with an index of biblical sources.
