Product description

Review

Review from previous edition beautifully illustrated and intelligently reader friendly (TLS)

This is a serious book as well as an attractive one (T. P. Wiseman, TLS)

a cut above (Booklist)

magnificent (Boris Johnson, Daily Telegraph (reviewing OCD))

a classic...a highly readable and browseable delight...should be in every reference collection (B. Juhl, Choice (reviewing OCD))

a delight for anyone with any curiosity about the roots of our Western culture...a browser's paradise, and I would think a researcher's quick rescuer (Arthur Miller, London Review of Books (reviewing OCD))

the third edition of The Oxford Classical Dictionary should be saluted (Nigel Spivey, Guardian (reviewing OCD))

a remarkable feat...Simon Hornblower and Tony Spawforth deserve a round of applause for the spread, exactness and range of this massive overhaul (Robin Lane Fox, Observer (reviewing OCD))

offers not only that breakfast for the mind we keep hearing about, but lunch, tea, dinner, supper and non-stop snacks...offers a cornucopia of accurate and succinct knowledge that would be hard to equal ((Peter Green, Washington Times (reviewing OCD))

the ultimate useful book (Peter Jones, Sunday Telegraph (reviewing OCD))

an astonishing book (Robert Beaumont, Yorkshire Evening Press (reviewing OCD))

the book's substance speaks for itself: 364 distinguished scholars contribute scrupulously sourced intellectual meat of a texture that Socrates himself would savour (Sunday Times (reviewing OCD))

For classical scholars, the Oxford Classical Dictionary is what Wisden is for cricket fans: the one indispensable reference book...this book is more than a crossword-filler's vade mecum. In the sense of our collective intellectual domestication, it is a household object. (The Week (reviewing OCD)) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
