5 for content, 1 for outrageous pricing, June 19, 2009

Antoon De Baets

I am the #1 Amazon reviewer for non-fiction, quite by accident (loading annotated bibliographies from the books I write) and have for the past two years been protesting the price jumps from industry.

I am also a publisher. This book cost no more than $10 per copy to produce. Industry has gone nuts and I protest this book’s price and urge readers and reviewers to join me in protesting. Amazon takes 55% of the retail price, so all things considered this book should not be priced at more than $45.00. The last $100 is criminal irresponsibility toward the field of knowledge and the public interest, and blackmail against libraries and other institutions that may consider the superb content a “must have.”

Instead I recommend the book Responsible History which I am buying myself today.

Other books in this vein you can buy (ALL of them for the price of CENSORSHIP) include:
Forbidden Knowledge: From Prometheus to Pornography
The Lessons of History
Lost History: Contras, Cocaine, the Press & ‘Project Truth’
1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus
Fog Facts : Searching for Truth in the Land of Spin (Nation Books)
The Age of Missing Information
Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media
Weapons of Mass Deception: The Uses of Propaganda in Bush’s War on Iraq
Rule by Secrecy: The Hidden History That Connects the Trilateral Commission, the Freemasons, and the Great Pyramids
