On August 10, 1632, five leading Jesuits convened in a sombre Roman palazzo to pass judgment on a simple idea: that a continuous line is composed of distinct and limitlessly tiny parts. The doctrine would become the foundation of calculus, but on that fateful day the judges ruled that it was forbidden. With the stroke of a pen they set off a war for the soul of the modern world. Amir Alexander takes us from the bloody religious strife of the sixteenth century to the battlefields of the English civil war and the fierce confrontations between leading thinkers like Galileo and Hobbes. The legitimacy of popes and kings, as well as our modern beliefs in human liberty and progressive science, hung in the balance; the answer hinged on the infinitesimal. Pulsing with drama and excitement, Infinitesimal will forever change the way you look at a simple line.

A student-friendly introduction to Latin Learning Latin can prove daunting even to the brightest students. But this innovative text draws students into the story of Rome and lets Virgil and Livy lead the way in learning declensions and conjugations. Latin Alive and Well is a classroom-tested textbook consisting of 36 units. It is designed for both high school and university classes, in both two-semester courses and intensive one-semester courses. Clear and direct, it avoids lengthy explanations in teaching grammar, instead introducing modern students to this venerable language by focusing on exercises and translations that make fine points of grammar more readily understandable. P. L. Chambers presents essential elements of grammar in a way that enables students to read classical authors immediately, introducing them to a passage from Virgil as early as the fifth chapter. In addition to using selected readings in Roman mythology, history, and philosophy to illustrate grammatical points, she has adopted an informal, encouraging tone, with a healthy dose of humor when appropriate. Latin Alive and Well is written so simply that students with no previous exposure to a foreign language can understand and learn the grammatical concepts. Previously available only in privately published editions, it has been used nationwide.

Additional resources include an unannotated version of the text for classroom use, supplementary passages in English from other ancient authors, and appendixes with a timeline of events and maps and battle plans. The text may be used in secondary schools and colleges as early as the first year of study. The copious translation help, notes, and cross-references also make it ideal for independent learners.
