Oxford Classical Dictionary
Written by distinguished scholars from around the world, The Oxford Classical Dictionary covers all aspects of the classical world from literature and history to religion, science, and archaeology. The Dictionary also contains many thematic entries on subjects relevant to the 21st century such as nationalism, race, gender, and ecology. Anthropology and reception have been added as new subject areas, covering topics such as creolization and kinship, as well as dance reception and translation. This is an essential reference for both scholars and non-specialists with an interest in the classical era.
