Pearson has been particularly generous in granting permissions to post old textbooks. Unfortunately, Cengage does not permit the posting of books where later editions remain in print. Thus, we can post only Cengage-owned books where editions have already gone out of print and where Cengage had already granted copyright permission back to the authors.
