Amazon once more

Some previous posts here have offered indirect criticisms of the shop Amazon.1 Now here is a direct assault on the behemoth, made by a publisher with much mainstream experience, just starting out on a new venture that will work outside the existing book trade and sell direct to customers.

(It’s interesting to compare Colin Robinson’s article with his Grit TV address, available at the side of his article for The Nation, as well as on YouTube. The advantage of the written over the spoken, in conveying ideas compactly, is clear.)
