I just saw a subtle but damaging edit suggested on one of my relatively popular answers on Stack Overflow, and thankfully it was rejected. As I understand it: for some reviewers it wouldn't have been possible to arrive at an approve/reject decision before spending possibly several minutes reading the question and understanding the answer. Given this, obviously, some of them chose to (incorrectly) "approve" the edit after what I assume was a quick glance. Why? Who knows. Reviewing edit suggestions is probably associated with a badge and thus there is incentive for reviewers to be quick rather than thorough with their reviews.

This scares me. I don't mind edits to my posts and wouldn't contest one even if it appeared (to me) to not bring any/much additional value to my post, but I certainly don't want edits to them that simply fly under the radar and make them wrong.

Is there a way I can see a list of all edits by others to all posts I ever made? I'm not requesting a notification on every edit, but a way to see these edits by clicking an appropriate link in the web UI.

You can find edits that others made to your posts on your profile page. It's under "responses/revisions".

On your profile page, go to the "Activity" tab.
From there, select "responses" and under that heading, "revisions".

Or go there directly, filling in this template of the URL:

http://<stack exchange site>/users/<user-id>/?tab=responses&sort=revision

I can see a "deleted 2 characters in body" edit in this history on my own page, so this overview does include minor edits.

I'm not aware of any functionality in the Stack Exchange UI to get such a list. But fortunately, this is quite easy to get via a SEDE query.

This is how the list looks for me, on Stack Overflow:

enter image description here

For reference, here is the complete query:

SELECT Id AS [Post Link], LastEditDate, Body
  FROM posts
  WHERE OwnerUserId = ##UserId##
    AND LastEditorUserId != OwnerUserId
  ORDER BY LastEditDate DESC

Note that SEDE is updated once a week, on Sunday morning.
