Subject: Educating Eve

In the course of the discussion of my book EDUCATING EVE, Peter Daniels has
written (posting 9.855) that "The book was/is not yet available in the
USA. I have still not seen a copy, either at a library or at a bookstore".

I am sorry that Peter Daniels has not managed to find a copy; no doubt some
publishers are more successful than others at getting their wares placed
in libraries and bookshops. But his statement that the book is not 
available in the USA is false. The US distributor is 
Cassell/Books International of Herndon VA, tel. 1-800-561 7704 or
703 661 1501. When I checked with the US-based online bookshop
this morning, EDUCATING EVE was listed (in stock locally, not for order
across the Atlantic), at a price of $67.95. My publisher 
does not keep me up to the minute with sales progress (I don't think 
academic publishers usually do), but for instance in February she told me 
that the well-known New York bookshop Barnes & Noble had just ordered 
40 copies.
