From the Back Cover:

A new, fully revised and updated edition of a well-established, unique work of reference and companion to all fields of modern thought.

• More discursive than an ordinary dictionary, more compact than an encyclopaedia.
• Indispensable as a reference book, irresistible for browsing through: almost an education in itself.
• The new edition has over 1000 new entries; hundreds have been rewritten/updated (total entries = 3500); it is 10% longer than previous edition; there are 106 new contributors; many areas have been expanded (e.g. sexual politics, race, environmental studies, computing); many new headwords added (God, communitarianism, perestroika, afrocentrism, Third Wave feminism, hypertext, culture jamming, fuzzy logic, infopreneur).

“How did one exist without this splendid book?”

“Quite unputdownable”
