Edmund Wright graduated from Oxford University in 1985 with a doctorate in history and entered publishing as a reference-book editor. Since 2004 he has been a self-employed contractor. Work has included updating the content of OUP's Dictionary of World History (2nd edition 2006 and 3rd edition 2014) and Dictionary of Computing (6th edition 2008); proofreading work on the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (6th edition 2007) and the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary (2009).
In these days, when a quick search on the web brings up much of
this information, there is still room for a reference book,
especially one as inexpensive as this, to provide corroboration
and, sometimes, correction of unauthenticated postings. * Chris
