'What Price Liberty' available pre-publication as variable price ebook
Found via thedigitalist.net:
The book is available for any price you care to choose between £14.99 and zero, Radiohead-style from here. Formats available are Epub and PDF. The book is 'What Price Liberty', non-fiction, UK politics, and the offer/experiment is only open until the date of publication, the fourth of June (and you'll need a Paypal account to pay for it);
'Fear of terrorism, crime, social chaos - factors which have put our ideal of individual liberty very much into retreat. Particularly in light of the debate surrounding 42-day detention, it is important to remind ourselves of just how complex the battle to achieve these rights has been. However, the question remains; how can we resist the growth of intrusive authoritarianism without exposing ourselves to crime, terrorism and other risks? History provides a guide to answering this question. "What Price Liberty?" takes us through four centuries of British, American and European history, elaborating not just how civil liberties were constructed in the past, but how they were continually rethought - and re-fought - in response to modernity, and puts into context the controversies of the past decade or so. If liberty is to survive now, it must again adapt to new circumstances, but it is up to us all to agree upon the value we place on it. An essential and utterly enlightening discussion, "What Price Liberty?" provides the material and arguments with which we can make sense of our times.'

Finally built up some interest in reading this but can't find the file! Would someone be able to check the (epub) filename you got so I know what I'm looking for?
(That'll teach me to start dragging EVERYTHING I get for free into Calibre immediately after download).
