Book Reviews

Classical World
“Because this handbook assumes no previous knowledge of grammar and because its explanations of English forms and their Latin equivalents are clear and succinct, it is well suited to independent study . . . the authors take the student step by step through a section of English grammar before proceeding to an explanation of the Latin counterpart.”
Modern Language Journal
“Each chapter is self-contained, so that the order of topics may be altered to suit the arrangement of just about any introductory Latin text. . . . this is a useful, carefully written, and well-edited text. It accomplishes its goals and does so very efficiently.”
The Classical Journal
“Teachers of Latin who believe that an essential aspect of their responsibility is to strengthen the student’s understanding of the syntactical structures underlying his native language . . . will certainly wish to include this unique new handbook . . . among the texts required in their elementary Latin classes . . . Response from teachers and professors, as well as high-schoolers, undergraduates, and graduate students . . . has been enormously enthusiastic: the volume has proven a valuable and much appreciated supplement in our beginning Latin course at the University of Georgia.
