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 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.
