Subject: The Communist Manifesto/Unintended Consequences
According to "Publisher's Weekly," Borders bookstores are planning to showcase the book, "The Communist Manifesto," by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, beginning May Day, 5/1/98.
I find it quite disturbing that you seem to value books about communism so highly, yet refuse to even stock novels such as, "Unintended Consequences" by John Ross.
I also find it difficult to believe that "The Communist Manifesto" would be in such high demand that it require a showcase near the cash registers. In fact, I tend to believe your stores have received significantly more requests for "Unintended Consequences."
Obviously, no bookstore can stock every book that is published. However, as an American citizen, I find more and more of these types of occurences tend to border on selective censorship. I certainly hope this is not the case, as the possibility of a citizen, grassroots boycott looms in the distance.
I am forwarding a copy of this letter to several mailing lists on the internet. In fairness to you, should you choose to comment, I will post in it's entirety, any response you may wish to make.
