Cicero Pro Milone: A Selection

Author: Robert West Format: Paperback Release Date: 07/04/2016

This is the OCR-endorsed publication from Bloomsbury for the Latin AS and A-Level (Group 1) prescription of Cicero's pro Milone sections 24-32, 34-35 and 43-52, and the A-Level (Group 2) prescription of sections 53-64 (to defendere) and 72-80, giving full Latin text, commentary and vocabulary, with a detailed introduction that also covers the prescribed text to be read in English for A Level. The death of Publius Clodius and the prosecution of Milo for his murder came at a critical point in the history of the late Republic, with Civil War and the collapse of the Republic only three years away. In his passionate defence of Milo, Cicero pleads for the rule of law as a vital counterweight to the anarchy that the gangs of Clodius, and Milo, had created. The published speech was regarded as a masterpiece of oratory in its own time, and is still held to be one of his finest compositions and a model for the presentation of such a defence.

Organometallic compounds range from species that are so reactive that they only have a transient existence at ambient temperatures to those thatare thermally very stable. They are used extensively in the synthesis of useful compounds on both small and large scales. Industrial processes involving plastics, polymers, electronic materials, and pharmaceuticals all depend on advances in organometallic chemistry.
