For nearly sixty years, Wheelock's Latin has remained the opitmus liber of beginning Latin textbooks.
When Professor Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; one reviewer predicted that the book "might well become the standard text" for introducing students to elementary Latin. Now, nearly six decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate.
This new edition of Wheelock's Latin has all of the features, many of them improved and expanded, that have made it the bestselling single-­volume beginning Latin textbook:
40 chapters with grammatical explanations and readings drawn from the works of Rome's major prose and verse writers;
Self-­tutorial exercises, each with an answer key, for independent study;
An extensive English–Latin/Latin–English vocabulary section;
A rich selection of original Latin readings—unlike other Latin textbooks, which contain primarily made-­up texts;
Etymological . . .

Told with Sagan's remarkable ability to make scientific ideas both comprehensible and exciting, Cosmos is about science in its broadest human context, how science and civilization grew up together.

Sagan retraces the fifteen billion years of cos-­mic evolution that have transformed matter into life and consciousness, enabling the Cosmos to wonder about itself. He considers the latest findings on life elsewhere and how we might communicate with the beings of other worlds.

Cosmos is the story of our long...
