    Bestselling author Norman Cantor delivers this compact but magisterial survey of the ancient world — from the birth of Sumerian civilization around B.C. in the Tigris-Euphrates valley (present-day Iraq) to the fall of the Roman Empire in A.D.

    Connect, First Edition, is a fun, 4-level, multi-skills American English course especially written and designed for young adolescents. The comprehensive, interleaved Teacher's Edition 4 provides teaching support for Student's Book 4, which is a high-intermediate-level text for students aged The central message of the book—at least from the perspective of a scholar of later periods of Jewish visuality—is that Jewish visual culture in antiquity was extremely polyvalent and heterogeneous with an utter inconsistency of both content and intent, the manifestations of which were entirely conditional on the time and place it was produced.
