"Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty; general readers." (Choice, 1 February 2011) "The text is likewise to be recommended to individuals interested in the effects of politics, military history, and culture on the history of language. In fact, perhaps one of Horrocks' greatest achievements is the skill with which he demonstrates the special value of the history of Greek, thinking about the Greek language in terms of breadth and depth that are unusual among linguists working on Greek." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 9 May 2011) This second takes account of reviews of the first and of the 2006 Greek translation." ( Book News Inc, November 2010)
