In 1996, Oxford published the third edition of its excellent resource, The Oxford Classical Dictionary. The goal of this new volume is to appeal to a wider audience by making some changes in the way the material from that dictionary is presented. While no entries have been shortened, some that were considered too recondite or technical for the nonspecialist have been omitted. Bibliographies attached to entries in the dictionary have been replaced by a general bibliography at the back of the book, and color and black-and-white illustrations illuminate some of the entries. Entries are now grouped under the following broad subject areas: History, Law & Society, Literature & Scholarship, Philosophy & Religion, and Science, Technology, & Material Culture. Highly recommended, even for libraries that already have copies of the dictionary.?Robert Andrews, Duluth P.L., MN
