It is on Amazon as a paperback. I suspect that it's unlikely that Amazon would sell many copies of the hardcover anyway. It is available in hardcover through Barnes & Ignoble, and it's listed in the books in print catalog so libraries can find it, and that's the reason I wanted a hardcover. So I'm not going to lose sleep over Amazon's page limitation.

I am going to press on with the e-book versions, though. For technical reasons, that's time consuming. Much of the source material is Supreme Court decisions. If you know anything about SCOTUS cases, they are cited by case name, case number, and page number. That means I can't just OCR the text and let it flow into a reflowable e-book. I need to preserve the original pagination, so that means getting PDFs of the decisions and then doing a screen grab to save each page as a separate image. Then I have to resize them and import them into a Word document. THEN I can upload it as an e-book.

There are hundreds of pages I have to do that with.
