Ancient Greece

What sort of work could job-hunters in Ancient Greece expect to find? What might their colleagues be like? The Ancient Greeks could become priests, although not if they deserted the army or were in debt, or doctors, taking an oath to keep their patients' details secret and not to poison them. What were the pay and conditions like for a politician or an architect in Ancient Greece? Which were the most dangerous jobs and which the most high status? Throughout the book, job adverts give an idea of the qualities and skills needed for each role and there's a verdict at the end to evaluate whether it was one of the best or worst jobs available. Photographs of artefacts from the period are married with humorous artwork to bring the workers of the era to life.

Players and Skills

Cricket is a game steeped in history and tradition. But it is also one of the most exciting, and rapidly changing, sports in the world. New, fast-paced, forms of the game such as the IPL have attracted a younger fan base, and sponsorship deals and increased media coverage mean that top cricket players are some of the best-known, highly paid, sports stars on the planet. Generation Cricket celebrates the rejuvenation of the game, giving readers a sense of the drama, action and skill involved in playing the game.Generation Cricket: Players and Skills looks at everything involved in playing cricket, from batting, fielding and bowling to scoring, equipment and the pitch. The rules of the game, including the ever-complex LBW law, are explained, along with how runs are made, and the numerous ways a player can be 'out'. The book also looks at some of the key people involved in a cricket match, including the umpire, wicket keeper and captain. Different bowling and batting techniques, from seam, swing and spin bowling to cover drives and hook shots, are also explained. Star Player features provide information about the men and women at the top of the sport both now and in the past, including Sachin Tendulkar, Ashton Agar, Charlotte Edwards, Kevin Pietersen and Muttiah Muralitheran. A comprehensive guide to the players, skills and tactics involved in a game of cricket, Generation Cricket: Players and Skills is ideal for cricket lovers aged 9 and above, either for project work or simply as a great leisure read.
