Effective as either a primary or secondary textbook, Attica: Intermediate Classical Greek fills a gap in the available materials by simultaneously providing a much-needed grammar review and an introduction to primary texts that students will be working with in the second and third year of study. Through comprehensive exercises, extensive explanatory notes, and an ancillary website with additional materials, this text gives students the skills they need to become comfortable with advanced second-year literary material.

Cynthia L. Claxton is senior lecturer and the undergraduate program director in Classics at the University of California, Irvine.

"Claxton's book does a remarkable job of guiding students through readings and encouraging them to practice what has been modeled for them on their own."—Lorenzo Garcia, Jr., University of New Mexico

"There is a definite need for materials to help students over the 'bump' between textbooks and 'real Greek'. This book promises to provide some of the most needed forms of help."—Lillian Doherty, University of Maryland

"Given the review and exercises [within], this text could serve as a very useful supplement for those students who are taking their first post-elementary class."—Helen Moritz, UC Santa Clara
