Lingua Latina is a complete immersion course providing Latin that students read and understand immediately. Every sentence is intelligible per se because the meaning and function of all new word forms is clear from the context, illustrations, or marginal notes throughout this carefully graded text. Part 1 (Familia Romana) is the eventful and entertaining story of a Roman family, which also serves as an introduction to the life and culture of ancient Rome. Part 2 (Roma Aeterna) tells Roman history from the beginnings. Students who have completed Part 1 are already able to read classical texts, such as Ørberg's editions of Caesar's Gallic Wars or of Plautus' Amphitryo. In Part 2, students read extensive selections from classical authors, refine their knowledge of syntax, and develop a vocabulary of over 4000 words. Upon completion of the course, students can read the most challenging classical texts with relative ease.
An Anthology of Sources
Author: Margaret L. King
Publisher: Hackett Publishing
By far the best collection of sources to introduce readers to Renaissance humanism in all its many guises. What distinguishes this stimulating and useful anthology is the vision behind it: King shows that Renaissance thinkers had a lot to say, not only about the ancient world--one of their habitual passions--but also about the self, how civic experience was configured, the arts, the roles and contributions of women, the new science, the 'new' world, and so much more. --Christopher S. Celenza, Johns Hopkins University

The articles in this volume of ARCHIMEDES examine particular cases of `reception' in ways that emphasize pressing historiographical and methodological issues. Such issues arise in any consideration of the transmission and appropriation of scientific concepts and practices that originated in the several `centers' of European learning, subsequently to appear (often in considerably altered guise) in regions at the European periphery. They discuss the transfer of new scientific ideas, the mechanisms of their introduction, and the processes of their appropriation at the periphery. The themes that frame the discussions of the complex relationship between the origination of ideas and their reception include the ways in which the ideas of the Scientific Revolution were introduced, the particularities of their expression in each place, the specific forms of resistance encountered by these new ideas, the extent to which such expression and resistance displays national characteristics, the procedures through which new ways of dealing with nature were made legitimate, and the commonalities and differences between the methods developed by scholars for handling scientific issues.

The 500th anniversary of Regiomontanus's birth has occasioned this depiction of his life and work. It is the first English translation of Ernst Zinner's monumental biography, plus a number of specially-written supplementary articles which help paint a more comprehensive picture of the current state of knowledge about Regiomontanus. The articles show the high regard in which the biography is still held by the community of scholars doing work on the mathematics of the Renaissance. Zinner's biography is a mine of information about early printing, astrolabes, tables of eclipses and the world of Henry of Langenstein, Johann of Gmunden, Georg Peuerbach, Cardinal Bessarion, Nicholas of Cusa and the extraordinary itinerant scholar, Johannes Müller of Königsberg — Regiomontanus. His contributions to mathematics are discussed (for example, he may have discovered the fifth and sixth perfect numbers) as well as the mysteries surrounding his life and death.

Key features The first reference textbook to provide a well-illustrated and comprehensive overview of the current knowledge in MRI in small animal veterinary practice Includes both evidenced-based material and the authors' personal experience, providing an excellent overview of current knowledge in the field. Contributors are international leaders in the field. Contains over 650 images of the highest quality. Bullet points format and table summaries throughout the book keep the concepts concise and organized. All the information presented reflects knowledge that is supported by peer-reviewed scientific publications, referenced at the end of each chapter – it is a book of ‘facts’. Richly illustrated with over 650 annotated images showcasing the main features of the disease processes. Images are obtained at all magnet field strengths, so as to reflect the current reality of veterinary MRI, which uses low-, mid- and high-field magnets. Diagnostic MRI in Dogs and Cats makes the vast and increasingly complex topic of clinical MRI in small animals accessible to all veterinarians. With the increasing availability of MRI technology, there is also a pressing need for expertise in interpreting these images. This is the first reference textbook to provide a well-illustrated and comprehensive overview of the current knowledge, focusing on imaging appearance rather than on clinical signs or treatment. With chapters on MRI physics and technology as well as sections on specific anatomical regions, the book functions as a stand-alone reference for the reader, whether they be a radiology/neurology resident in training or a practitioner with a need to learn about veterinary clinical MRI. Each chapter is authored by internationally-renowned experts in the specific area of veterinary radiology, disseminating their experience and summarizing the current knowledge to provide an excellent overview of what is currently known in the field. The chapters on physics and MRI technology are concise and accessible, using many visual aids and diagrams, and avoiding abstract concepts and equations whenever possible. Within each anatomical section, each chapter focuses on a disease category of that body region. When it is important to understand the imaging appearance, the pathophysiology is reviewed and imaging features of prognostic relevance are detailed. This practical yet thoroughly comprehensive book is primarily an evidence-based learning resource for trainees, but will also aid practising veterinarians who have less MRI experience.
