Not so much edited as bowdlerized. A pale shadow of Sabatier's great classic. The choice to eliminate Sabatier's powerful and controversial introduction is, by itself, reason to pass this edition by. The original was so subversive that it spent decades on the index of books banned by the Church. This diluted version wouldn't challenge anyone. The annotations are largely irritating insertions of spin and commentary by safer and more Curia-friendly writers.Now that the original English translation of the book is available electronically for Nook, and for less money, go straight to the real thing.
