This clever little book of crosswords has been put together by a professional crossworld compiler and a very well-known professor of classics. The clues are all in English but the answers are almost all in Latin! This is not a scholarly book - anyone whose schooldays taught them amo, amas, amat will be able to make a stab at many of the puzzles. And some of the answers are obvious even if you have no Latin at all - e.g. Q. Existing condition of a very old pop group? (6,3) A. Status Quo! Still for those who enjoy a challenge, the puzzles do get harder as you work your way through the book, ending up with some really fiendish ones. There are still lots of jokes along the way.

Another great book of puzzle-solving challenges at a popular price!

They're entertaining, and a great value: not only are the crosswords more mainstream and fun than the ones in The New York Times, but each book contains a generous 72 puzzles--not the mere 50 of competing volumes. The stay-open, lie-flat, specially reinforced spiral binding makes it easier to work on the puzzles anywhere, too.

Classics Transformed

This is the first book to give a general account of the transformation of classics in English schools and universities from being the amateur knowledge of the Victorian gentleman to that of the professional scholar, or from an elite social marker to a marginalized academic subject. The challenges to the authority of classics in 19th-century England are analyzed, as are the many and various ideological responses of its practitioners. The impact of university reform on the content and organization of classical knowledge is described in detail, with special reference to Cambridge. Chapters are devoted to the effects of state intervention, social snobbery, and democracy on the provision of classics in schools, and the dissensions within the bodies set up to defend it. The narrative runs clear up to the present, fully covering along the way the abolition of Compulsory Latin in 1960 and the absence of classics from the National Curriculum in 1988.

Puzzles are a great way to learn about a subject, and what could be better during a presidential election year than crosswords about America’s leaders and their spouses? Because they’re so much fun to do, kids will easily absorb and remember the historical facts each one conveys. And these crosswords have a smart twist: instead of solving clues to come up with the right words, children are actually given words to fit into the grid. Their challenge is to figure out where the answer goes. Every puzzle features an entertaining story with phrases that appear in ALL CAPS and bold type. These are the words that belong in the grid, and by counting the letters, kids can begin to place them correctly.

Wht’s bttr thn crsswrds? Tht’s rght: crsswrds wth n vwls! At first, these challenging, but fiendishly fun, puzzles look like the usual crossword. But there’s a devilish twist: you write only the consonants in the boxes, not the vowels. So when you look at the grid, there’s no quick way to know exactly how many letters make up the right solution. Plus, because you don’t need as many spaces for each word, the phrases can be longer than usual--and that makes the grids wide open and ratchets up the difficulty level. For those who need a little extra help, there’s a hints section to tear out and refer to when needed, as well as grids with wordlists explaining (with vowels) what the answers are.
