Today is the official release date for our latest book-Preserving Democracy, by Elgin Hushbeck, Jr. Official release date has an interesting definition around here, in that it is a bit more like a cloud than a specific point. As a rule, we hold all prepublication offers open until all editions are being shipped to all customers.
Here are the details on Preserving Democracy:
Approximate Expected shipping/availability dates:
