"New material, especially about the controversial topics of gender and reproduction, has been added. Older articles have been revised, or their bibliographies updated... The scope of this edition is, in fact, impressively broad... Recent news about sexual abuse by members of the clergy is not mentioned, no doubt because of inevitable delays in publishing so large a reference set... Highly recommended."
