My history book, on one of the very fist leaves, where it has all the copyright information and the like, says this:

"this book cannot be re-exported from the country to which it is sold by McGraw-Hill. The International Edition is not available in North America".

huh?
is there some evil conspiracy to keep americans ignorant of the rest of the world?
