  1. The History of the Renaissance World: From the Rediscovery of Aristotle to the Conquest of Constantinople

    The History of the Renaissance World: From the Rediscovery of Aristotle to the Conquest of Constantinople

    SKU: 2621

    $35.00

    A lively and fascinating narrative history about the birth of the modern world. Beginning in the heady days just after the First Crusade, this volume—the third in the series that began with The History of the Ancient World and The History of the Medieval World—chronicles the contradictions of a world in transition. Popes continue to preach crusade, but the hope of a Christian empire comes to a bloody end on the walls of Constantinople. Aristotelian logic and Greek rationality blossom while the Inquisition gathers strength. Kings and emperors continue to insist on their divine rights, but ordinary people all over the world seize power. New currencies are created, new weapons invented, and world-changing catastrophes alter the landscape: the Little Ice Age and the Great Famine kill millions, the Black Death millions more. In the chaos of these events, our own world begins to take shape. Follow the story back; check out the History of the Medieval World and the History of the Ancient World! Hardbound. 816 pages.

  2. Big Book of Mazes and Labyrinths

    Big Book of Mazes and Labyrinths

    SKU: 13230

    $8.95

    In labyrinths and mazes the path least traveled does make all the difference — but you will also find yourself bridge crossing, escaping from caves, lighting firecrackers, untangling snakes, ringing bells, visiting country taverns, spelling out passwords, and solving a host of other unique problems in Walter Shepherd's fascinating takeoffs on one of the world's oldest intellectual stimulations. There are 50 new puzzles in this book. There are crime names and Christmas mazes, country mazes and city mazes, mazes for all skills and mazes for all seasons of the year. There are even mazes that are games you can play over and over again. Each maze has a story to go with it and often a set of hints and complications. The illustrations are all printed in large size (perfect for framing or creating in craft or needlework for even more amazing fun). Some are classical mazes: others are solid mazes, ripple mazes, short-path labyrinths, avoidance labyrinths, mazes in which you have to visit all rooms and mazes that test your skill in countless other ways. Also included is an introduction to the history of mazes and a special section on maze solving. If somehow you don't get one of the mazes or feel you have to test your own conclusions, a solutions section in the back gives full information. Walter Shepherd has made another significant contribution to cerebral recreations in this volume. You will find hours of pleasure and hours of delightful torture when you show them to friends. Both young and old will have fun solving these puzzles. 128 pages. From Dover Publications. Learn More

  4. The Story of the Ancient World

    The Story of the Ancient World

    SKU: 4915

    $28.95

    The Story of the Ancient World. From the Creation of the world through the fall of the Persian empire at the hands of Alexander the Great in 331 B.C., "The Story of the Ancient World" retells as en engaging narrative the history of mankind's beginning, the rise of the nations, and the story of the great ancient civilizations of the Sumerians, the Hebrews, the Egyptians, the Phoenicians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, and the Persians. Old Testament history is taken as authoritative, and the history of the other great ancient civilizations is also told, woven in and out of the Old Testament story at the proper places in the narrative. As the story of the entire ancient world was never completely told in a single volume of Guerber's histories, Christine Miller has taken Guerber's The Story of the Chosen People and has included chapters relating the history of the Sumerians, Egyptians, Phoenicians, Assyrians, Babylonians, and Persians, and has woven them all together into a single, seamless narrative, carefully preserving Guerber's own style. An extensive bibliography of sources is included. Paperback. 279 pages. From Nothing New Press.
