About the Book

The editors, working with a team of 325 renowned authorities in the field of ethics, have revised, expanded and updated this classic encyclopedia. Along with the addition of 150 new entries, all of the original articles have been newly peer-reviewed and revised, bibliographies have been updated throughout, and the overall design of the work has been enhanced for easier access to cross-references and other reference features. New entries include * Cheating * Dirty hands * Gay ethics * Holocaust * Journalism * Political correctness * and many more.


"All in all, this version of the Encyclopedia of Ethics is just more of a good thing… Libraries that found the first edition valuable will be even more impressed with this new version." -- Against the Grain

"An essential purchase… Especially for large public and academic libraries. Libraries that own the first edition will want to replace it with the second." -- Booklist/RBB

"This encyclopedia has great depth, and is highly recommended for all libraries." -- Choice

"An excellent work, which can be recommended with confidence to any college, university, or seminary library. The changes in this second edition are substantive and important enough to warrant replacing the 1992 version… Anyone who is a student and/or teacher of ethics would benefit from having a copy near at hand." -- Anglican Theological Review
