"Congratulations on hitting just the right approach to making a very enjoyable set of Latin texts more functional for college teaching."--Robert Luginbill, University of Louisville "This new and improved version of the Oxford Latin Course is better suited for today's college students. It is a reading-approach text that also has an excellent grammar component."--Victor Leuci, Westminster College "Across the board, students ask for more history and culture in Latin class, and this book gives them exactly that. The running story, cultural essays, and actual Latin readings will hold their interest much more effectively than random sentences and vocabulary."--Zoe Kontes, Kenyon College "I am favorably impressed by the new cartoons. They are drawn in a style that most college students will find compelling."--David Christenson, University of Arizona
