I note that neither the publisher nor Amazon say this is the 3rd edition, first published in 1976 (the 2011 date on Amazon is the reprint date of this dictionary).

If you want the old 3rd edition, then go for it.

However, Arabic courses and academics will recommend the 4th Revised edition, 1994, sold by Amazon - link below
Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic: Arabic-English

If you wish to check my comments above, then the edition I am reviewing has 1130 pages. The latest 4th edition has 1301 pages. The original had 1110 pages, so the reprint I am reviewing has added 20 pages as another review has complained about. A link to the original 3rd edition on Amazon is below:
A Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic (The Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic)

Hopefully this has given the extra information lacking in the description, to enable potential customers to make up their minds before investing their money.

Warning! This is not the most recent edition of the dictionary. I bought it because it says Nov. 2011, and the 4th edition is 1994, so I assumed it must be a reprint of the 4th edition. On the copyright page there's no date at all and no mention of what edition it is. The only date anywhere is at the end of the introduction, and it's November 1960! I feel the information given and the Nov. 2011 date is very misleading.

A very useful, absolutely necessary dictionary for all students of Arabic - recommended to students once past the beginner's stage, as it helps to expand vocabulary much more than online translators. It is easy to use and well laid out.

Excellent depth and coverage of the language. Be aware though this is an Arabic-English not English-Arabic dictionary. It makes a huge difference when looking up words. Perhaps best to get the usual bi-lingual versions.
