"After an introduction on the interconnections of the ancient world, four sections cover the world geographically: the Mediterranean and Roman Empire, West and Central Asia, Asia, and the Americas. Each section begins with a map and follows with color plates of 150 works, each accompanied by explanatory text. Celts excelled in intricate metalwork; Egyptians melded Greco-Roman and Egyptian styles; peoples east of the Mediterranean produced a wide range of sculpture, ceramics, and precious metal objects; and in what is now Afghanistan, Pakistan, and northern India, Buddhist art was incorporated with Greco-Roman influences. In East Asia, China's empire under the Han Dynasty created artifacts in every medium, and seminomads in northern China fabricated metalwork often to adorn horses. In cultures of the Pacific in South and Mesoamerica, objects were made from stone, ceramic, and gold."--Krisostomus.

When Earth Command first defeated the Romulans and the Neutral Zone was established, it was with the help of other races across the galaxy. Out of those first uneasy but crucial alliances came the United Federation of Planets and its combined forces, Starfleet. But the close confines of a starship with so many different races and personalities on board creates tensions across all the ranks. Control of what could grow to be the greatest power in the galaxy is at stake and no one can take it lightly. So when the flagship of the new Federation fleet is up for grabs among six new Starfleet captains, Admiral Ed Walker is determined to keep this jewel, and all of Starfleet with her, away from the scientists and under military command. Walker chooses Captain Aaron Stiles as his protege in this endeavour. Stiles, bent on avenging the death of his brother Jake, faces stiff resistance from Walker's rebellious space-jock nephew Dane and scientist Captain Bryce Shumar. But they face their biggest threat of all in an unknown alien race destroying the bases of the Oreias system. Can they ignore their differences and pull together to ensure that Starfleet and the Federation has a future?

Forced to work together, in spite of their differences, they wend their way north through the city, hoping that their families will find them before the bad magicals do. Join Moira, Braidy and Brody on their adventure as they escape from their kidnappers, explore New York City, and eventually find their way home-with a little help from some unexpected friends.

What the World Was Like in First-Century Palestine

For anyone who's ever pondered what everyday life was like during the time of Jesus comes a lively and illuminating portrait of the nearly unknown world of daily life in first-century Palestine. What was it like to live during the time of Jesus? Where did people live? Who did they marry? And what was family life like? How did people survive? These are just some of the questions that Scott Korb answers in this engaging new book, which explores what everyday life entailed two thousand years ago in first-century Palestine, that tumultuous era when the Roman Empire was at its zenith and a new religion-Christianity-was born. Culling information from primary sources, scholarly research, and his own travels and observations, Korb explores the nitty-gritty of real life back then-from how people fed, housed, and groomed themselves to how they kept themselves healthy. He guides the contemporary reader through the maze of customs and traditions that dictated life under the numerous groups, tribes, and peoples in the eastern Mediterranean that Rome governed two thousand years ago, and he illuminates the intriguing details of marriage, family life, health, and a host of other aspects of first-century life. The result is a book for everyone, from the armchair traveler to the amateur historian. With surprising revelations about politics and medicine, crime and personal hygiene, this book is smart and accessible popular history at its very best.
