Barron's Ticktock books feature handsome full-color magazine-style layouts that present fascinating information on a wide variety of subjects. Books in Ticktock's Early Civilizations series tell the stories of cultures around the world -- how they came into existence, their achievements, their leaders, the disasters they endured, their military exploits, their religions, arts, technologies, and much more. Ticktock books are fun to read, and make fine sources of ideas for school essays and class projects.
