My Latest Book Published!

Over a decade in the writing, my latest book has just been published by Springer, Complex Evolutionary Dynamics in Urban-Regional and Ecologic-Economic Systems: From Catastrophe to Chaos and Beyond. It is an unpleasant $119.00 from the publisher, but "only" $98.49 at Amazon, where it is apparently selling well for a book of this sort.

An oddity is that they left the "Jr." off my name on both the cover and the copyright page, which means that some people may think the book is by my late father. However, ironically, a recent reprint of his most famous book, Logic [for Mathematicians], is being advertised by eBay on the internet as being by "J. Barkley Rosser, Jr." and somebody has put into my father's Wikipedia entry that the book is by "John B. Rosser," ugh, with neither he nor I ever using our first name(s) in any of our publications of any sort ever. Oh well, darned computer software and who knows what all.

Ordered tonight.

Why don't the price of your books ever come down?

'Complex Evolutionary Dynamics in Urban-Regional and Ecologic-Economic Systems'....hmmmm, the words have a certain poetry about them. Should appeal to a wide range of strange people. Like a dynamic physicist or a neuro-economist.

I have not checked lately on the price, but I know that the one you just ordered is available in paperback. The new one is not yet (and may never be), although my edited Handbook of Complexity Research, Elgar, 2009, has gone into paperback, which I did not expect at all. Yeah, the new one will get a varied audience, shall we say.
