Bellesiles: Old loose end now, but I post it for future reference: Publisher Stops History Book Publication, an AP story in the Austin American Statesman (it's all over the place; why not Austin).

NEW YORK (AP)--Publication has been halted on a disputed book about the history of guns in the United States.

Questions about Michael Bellesiles' ``Arming America'' had already led Columbia University to rescind the prestigious Bancroft Prize for history.

When Columbia made the announcement last month, publisher Alfred A. Knopf said the book would remain in print. But Jane Garrett, Bellesiles' editor, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the publisher would no longer sell it...

According to Garrett, the book has sold about 8,000 copies in hardcover and about 16,000 in paperback.


Others have remarked that considering all the attention, these are pretty low numbers.
