From the Inside Flap:

The original Roget's Thesaurus, with its ingenious thematic organization, served as a benchmark in language reference books for nearly 100 years. This new Roget edition of the renowned Webster's New World(TM) Thesaurus features an all-new thematic index, based on Roget's original categories, that provides a new means of access to the body of the thesaurus without sacrificing the proven usefulness of its A-Z structure. New introductory material reintroduces Roget's organizational technique to a new generation of thesaurus users. A useful and entertaining appendix provides lists of important terms grouped by their endings, such as -cracy (government types), -ology (fields of scholarship), and more. Based on an alphabetical list of more than 30,000 of the words most commonly used by writers and speakers in America, Webster's New World(TM) Roget's A-Z Thesaurus suggests over 300,000 synonymous, related, and derived terms to help you say what you really mean to say. Entries include brief definitions to distinguish among the various senses of words and their related synonyms. Idioms of all sorts are included, an unusual and enriching feature in a thesaurus. Extensive synonym studies provide even deeper and more nuanced information, as well as examples invaluable for sure-footed usage guidance. Writers, speakers, editors, and students will find that Webster's New World is, more than ever before, the most helpful and effective word resource of all. Webster's New World(TM) is the name millions of people trust for language reference books. For decades the Webster's New World staff has maintained an extensive language-tracking program and from it created the finest dictionaries and language guides available. The premier dictionary of American English and the official dictionary of the Associated Press, Webster's New World(TM) College Dictionary is now available in its Fourth Edition - revised and updated with over 5,000 new entries and a full-color world atlas. These handy pocket-size references, with durable vinyl covers, are ideal for students.
