Powerpoint Slides for My World War I "The Knot of War" Lecture

This Means War!!

McGraw-Hill and Google Books just charged my $14 for what seemed to be an electronic copy of Hyman Minsky's Stabilizing an Unstable Economy but was actually only the first chapter of the book.

I don't like being charged $14 for introductory book chapters. I don't like bait-and-switch.

I think Google Books has some considerable amount of explaining to do...

UPDATE: Google appeases:
