From the Publisher:

Chapter 1 more completely relates Greek myth to Greek religion and history.
The treatment of the Goddess tradition (in Chapter 4) has been revised.
Chapter 5 now includes Hymn To Hermes, translated by Thelma Sargent.
The text offers new translations of Euripides' Bacchants and Medea.
Sophocles' Antigone replaces Oedipus at Colonus.
A new section on the heroine appears in Chapter 10.
A new Web site accompanies the text (see "Ancillaries").
Theory. The text is hailed by enthusiastic teachers as the perfect amount of textual exposition needed to enlighten, without excess detail or arcana.
Primary works. More than 700 pages of primary selections, many of them complete works, engage students in a direct experience of the major hymns, epics, and plays of classical myth.
Art. More than 200 photographs of classical works of art give students insight into how the Greeks and Romans envisioned gods, and give the book visual impact.
Distinctions between Greek and Roman myth. Sensitive to the transformation of "raw" myths into literature, Harris and Platzner explore the reflections of culture in myth.
Accessible style and effective learning aides. The text is designed to ease students into the study of mythology:
Each chapter begins with a discussion of key themes and ends with review questions and a list of suggested readings.
Boxed summaries encapsulate selected topics.
A 30-page glossary includes key terms and major figures.
Maps, charts, and timetables provide a visual perspective.
