Not exactly. If Amazon think sales justify it, they will hold a book in stock (as, presumably, will the U Chicago Co-op bookstore) -- and Amazon UK do indeed stock it. The constant change of publisher is probably what has caught out Amazon in this case -- they may well be trying to order it from the wrong US warehouse.
