From the Back Cover:

Studies in Etymology, 2nd edition is equally devoted to Greek and Latin language roots and includes historical information so users can trace, and thus better grasp, the organic growth of the English language. Vocabulary charts and extensive exercises aid memorization and learning comprehension. The second edition has been coauthored by Rita M. Fleischer of The Graduate School and University Center of The City University of New York.
