Yes. When I say "I can't find the book tonight", I don't mean that "I don't know what book Gildea wrote in 1998". I mean "I own a copy but can't remember where I left it." I think it's in a box somewhere around here. If you find the topic interesting enough, it's a good bargain at I wanted a copy for my thesis and was happy to find it there for 95% off. -- Pat
