Get Herman or Bozeman or Quiggin or Steele Instead,

I am a publisher, an author, and an intelligence professional.

This book undoubtedly has good content, but the publisher has been grotesquely irresponsible in pricing it out of reach of individual scholars and citizens and government officials seeking to continue their education.

As a publisher, I am happy to inform the prospective buyer that in lots of 2,500, hard copy books including color jackets and flaps, can be printed for a penny a page. Amazon pays publishers 40%. Hence, this book, sold at $35, would yield the publisher $15.70 or so, minus the printing cost of no more than $5, hence a $10 profit, entirely reasonable for a book.

What price knowledge? What price a lack of ethics among publishers?

See my lists and my many reviews for more honorable affordable knowledge.

All of my books are free online and prices to cover costs at Amazon.

Instead of this book, whose author is being abused, buy:
Intelligence Power in Peace and War
Strategic Intelligence & Statecraft: Selected Essays (Brassey’s Intelligence and National Security Library)
Seeing the Invisible: National Security Intelligence in an Uncertain Age
The New Craft of Intelligence: Personal, Public, & Political–Citizen’s Action Handbook for Fighting Terrorism, Genocide, Disease, Toxic Bombs, & Corruption
