Reviews
With this volume...Scarecrow Press continues to carve out a niche for itself in the realm of historical reference....The uninitiated will appreciate the lengthy overview....Users looking for significant personalities will not be disappointed....Highly recommended for academic and large public libraries.
The bibliography...is very comprehensive.... This resource would make a fine addition to any collection in higher education and could easily bear the title, 'Historical Encyclopedia of Ethics.'
The Historical Dictionary of Ethics provides an excellent introduction and overview to the study of ethics. The contributors and successful in education their readers. The writing is clear and concise. Historical Dictionary of Ethic is a valuable addition to any research, college, special, or large public library.
Gensler and Spurgin offer a nontechnical and broadly accessible encyclopedia of concepts, persons, schools of thought, controversies, and terminology associated predominantly, but not exclusively, with the Western ethical tradition. The 283 amply cross-referenced entries are generally fluent and direct, and the authors take few interpretive liberties, in conformity with a nonspecialist readership....Recommended.
