Unrivaled in scope and scholarship, The Oxford Companion to Classical Civilization is an indispensable guide to the richly textured history of ancient Greece and Rome. From military history to architecture, ancient law to mythology, the sciences to the arts, these meticulously detailed entries breathe life into the people, places and events that shaped the development of classical civilization. Filled with both essay length articles and short quick reference entries, this extraordinarily thorough yet accessibly written book is a treasury of information on classical civilization. Arranged alphabetically, fully cross-referenced, and illustrated throughout, The Oxford Companion to Classical Civilization will certainly become an essential resource for anyone interested in learning more about the cradle of western civilization.

From Library Journal:

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 Bibliographies attached to entries in the dictionary have been replaced by a general bibliography at the back of the book, and color and black-and-white illustrations illuminate some of the entries.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
