CHOICE Outstanding Academic Titles for 2014 from Routledge Classics and Archaeology
Each year CHOICE Magazine names a small percentage of the best scholarly works reviewed in their magazine as Outstanding Academic Titles . Routledge is delighted to announce that four of our most popular Classics and Archaeology titles have been chosen for this highly selective list in 2014.
The Routledge titles chosen for this prestigious honor, along with select praise from Choice, are below:
Maya and Their Central American Neighbors: Settlement Patterns, Architecture, Hieroglyphic Texts and Ceramics edited by Geoffrey E Braswell
“The book’s uniqueness is that the Mayan polities of present-day Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras are considered together…No other edited compendium provides this sweeping scope; hence, this significant, scholarly volume fills a major void for Mesoamerican specialists.”- C. C. Kolb
The Ancient Near East: History, Society and Economy by Mario Liverani
“ Masterfully integrating textual and archaeological sources, the author weaves a fascinating, enlightening historical narrative, focusing throughout on the interplay among politics, society, economy, ideology, and the environment.” - W Kotter
The Etruscan World edited by Jean MacIntosh Turfa
“Turfa provides a broad yet deep analysis of an ancient Etruria…this work will set the standard upon which other works concerned with these ancient people and their influence must follow.”- P. Lorenzini
Animals in the Ancient World from A to Z by Kenneth F. Kitchell Jr.
“This latest offering in Routledge's " The Ancient World from A to Z " series elegantly blends scholarly precision with an accessible style, making it a pleasure to browse…This compendium should be a welcome addition to any library supporting collections ranging from archaeology to zoology, including classical studies.”- B. Juhl
