In a lecture about the value of Classics given at Oxford University in 1947, Dorothy L. Sayers, the British Author, translator and humanist said, The best grounding for an education is the Latin Grammar. I say this not because Latin is traditional and mediaeval , but simply a rudimentary knowledge of Latin cuts down the labour and pains of learning almost any other subject by at least fi fty per cent It is the key to the vocabulary and structure of the Teutonic languages as well as the technical Vocabulary of all the sciences and to the literature of the entire Mediterranean civilisation, together with all its historical documents.'a After retiring from the Australian Public Service the author studied classics for some time at the Australian National University. He also held classes in Latin for several years at The University of the Third Age. Here he developed and used the system contained in this book; namely that information is more easily retained if it is related to information already held. In easy structured steps, this book introduces the reader to grammatical and syntactical structure of the Latin language. It is written for readers who do not have time or otherwise do not wish for a more formal course.

Authorities ranging from philosophers to politicians nowadays question the existence of concepts of society, whether in the present or the past. This book argues that social concepts most definitely existed in late medieval and early modern England, laying the foundations for modern models of society. The book analyzes social paradigms and how they changed in the period. A pervasive medieval model was the "body social," which imagined a society of three estates – the clergy, the nobility, and the commonalty – conjoined by interdependent functions, arranged in static hierarchies based upon birth, and rejecting wealth and championing poverty. Another model the book describes as "social humanist," that fundamentally questioned the body social, advancing merit over birth, mobility over stasis, and wealth over poverty. The theory of the body social was vigorously articulated between the 1480s and the 1550s. Parts of the old metaphor actually survived beyond 1550, but alternative models of social humanist thought challenged the body concept in the period, advancing a novel paradigm of merit, mobility, and wealth. The book’s methodology focuses on the intellectual context of a variety of contemporary texts.
