Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
A is for atavism, B is for bellicose. Twenty-one essays, each beginning with a letter of the classical Latin alphabet, ramble off into little lessons in Roman history, culture, and etymology. Although the facts make interesting browsing, the frivolous, often trite style is distracting. A bibliography of more scholarly works is appended. Maurice Taylor, Brunswick Cty. Lib., Southport, N.C.
