This 1998 revision of an original 1966 publication is regarded as one of the Best histories of ethics available. This new edition includes a preface by MacIntyre -- essential to read before tackling the body of the work -- that reviews the reception and criticism of the book, and offers a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of shortcomings and defects in the text that he himself sees from a vantage point three decades after he originally wrote it. 304 pp.
