Heinlein - Stranger in a strange land - which one is the unabridged ?

There are two editions on Amazon (and Kobo and I believe also on Google), for brevity I shall only use Amazon links:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...al-text&sr=1-1

and

http://www.amazon.it/Stranger-Strang...a+strange+land

Does anybody know which one (if any) is the unabridged version ?
There was a discussion some time ago, but it was to almost no avail looking at the links, one should try. Has anyone tried, and can tell which one is which ?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: By a strange coincidence I just noticed that I linked an Italian version, which does not seem to exist on Amazon.com. Sorry for that, and I do not know why is that.

On the page in Italian, if you scroll down to the section "Quali altri articoli acquistano i clienti, dopo aver visualizzato questo articolo?" - that's the uncut edition.


click to go to the uncut edition.


ETA the Hodder & Stoughton edition is the one I have on my Kobo so I'm not just reading the amazon page - I know this is the uncut edition

Posting again to say that if you are a Heinlein/Stranger in a Strange Land fan you might be interested in this short article about some of the cuts made to the book as originally published:

Heinlein Society Stranger vs Stranger

You may also note that the uncut edition was first published in 1991 - your links in the OP both have a publication date of 1987 so can't be the re-release authorised by Heinlein's widow.

Thank you ! And, strange as it may seem, it is also the one which costs less !!

Thanks for this thread. I have the originally published SIASL, but I shall now put the uncut version on my shopping list.

I didn't feel it added much to the original except length.
