The revised edition adds more than 200 completely new essays to the original 817 essays and updates and expands many of those original essays. The main thrust of this revised edition is on applied ethics, with a particular emphasis on current issues. Every essay begins with ready reference top matter entries providing such information as dates and places of birth and death for important personages; dates of important events; an entry that provides the "type of ethics" to which the topic relates; and a brief statement of the significance of the topic to the field of ethics. In addition, each entry contains cross references in the form of a "see also" line that guides readers to related entries contained in the set. All essays of 500 or more words include bibliographies. The bibliographies of all the original articles in the set have been updated to mid 2004. Appendices include an annotated list of organizations devoted to ethics issues, with addresses and Web site information; a comprehensive categorized Bibliography; a Glossary of basic ethics terminology; a Biographical Directory of people mentioned in the essays and a Categorized List of Topics organized by types of ethics.
