This brand new addition to the Minidictionary series is a revised edition of the Routledge Latin Dictionary. It has been updated and revised to meet the needs of both students of Latin, and those with an interest in the classical world. Offering 50,000 entries and over 120,000 translations, the dictionary now reflects recent developments in the study of Latin, such as pronunciation and grammar. The most up-to-date and comprehensive dictionary of its size, it includes complete grammatical information about each Latin word, and indicates differences in meaning, style, and context in cases of ambiguity. In addition, it provides details of conjugation for Latin verbs, comprehensive markings of vowel length as a guide to classical Latin pronunciation, and detailed appendices of historical personalities and mythological characters, and geographical names, with English explanations of who they were. A handy resource for anybody with an interest in the Latin language or ancient history, The Oxford Latin Minidictionary is also an invaluable reference for word-origin enthusiasts.

The story of Oxford University Press spans five centuries of printing and publishing. Beginning with the first presses set up in Oxford in the fifteenth century and the later establishment of a university printing house, it leads through the publication of bibles, scholarly works, and the Oxford English Dictionary, to a twentieth-century expansion that created the largest university press in the world, playing a part in research, education, and language learning in more than 50 countries. With access to extensive archives, the four-volume History of OUP traces the impact of long-term changes in printing technology and the business of publishing. It also considers the effects of wider trends in education, reading, and scholarship, in international trade and the spreading influence of the English language, and in cultural and social history - both in Oxford and through its presence around the world. In the decades after 1970 Oxford University Press met new challenges but also a period of unprecedented growth. In this concluding volume, Keith Robbins and 21 expert contributors assess OUP's changing structure, its academic mission, and its business operations through years of economic turbulence and continuous technological change. The Press repositioned itself after 1970: it brought its London Business to Oxford, closed its Printing House, and rapidly developed new publishing for English language teaching in regions far beyond its traditional markets. Yet in an increasingly competitive worldwide industry, OUP remained the department of a major British university, sharing its commitment to excellence in scholarship and education. The resulting opportunities and sometimes tensions are traced here through detailed consideration of OUP's business decisions, the vast range of its publications, and the dynamic role of its overseas offices. Concluding in 2004 with new forms of digital publishing, The History of OUP sheds new light on the cultural, educational, and business life of the English-speaking world in the late twentieth century.
