In this series from Lucent Books, young readers will gain an understanding of daily life in other times and places through the window of the workplace. With the help of numerous primary source quotations, books in this series present a vivid and realistic picture of life on the job for those who worked as painters during the Renaissance, as actors on the Elizabethan stage, as sweatshop laborers during the Industrial Revolution, and more. Readers will learn about the qualifications and preparation needed for these various jobs, about job hazards, about the workday, and the work itself. In addition to fully documented quotes, all books include sidebars, photographs, annotated bibliographies, and indexes.
"The Series reflects a variety of occupations, time periods, and global perspectives. The table of contents and index make it easy to locate what you want. There is enough detail for a student to compare workers of today with those in history. Recommended."
