A Tight Wad Publisher
My copy of the British General Election of 2010 arrived today. I always order the hardback copy because I have the complete set since 1945 in hardback. Imagine my surprise, though, when I discovered that this year Macmillan appears to have been so tightfisted that they haven't even put a dust jacket on it. I paid the best part of £50 for a naked book. So if they want a link for people to buy it, they can whistle for it. Indeed, I'm so appalled, I am not even going to review it, as I had originally intended. Apologies to Dennis Kavanagh and Phil Cowley, but they have been shortchanged by a publisher who ought to know better. Shame on you, Macmillan.
