Booksellers who had offered Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler on Amazon saw the retail giant pull the title, reports the New York Times.
On Tuesday, the book was again available, but only through Amazon and not, say, a secondhand seller or a third-party publisher (like Houghton Mifflin).
Amazon sellers say the kerfuffle highlights the lack of a coherent and proactive policy on appropriate material — rather, they say, the company seems to simply react to whatever the current pressure is.
You won’t find easy answers to the question in the full NYT article, but you will find a further description of the issue.
