Looking for E-books for Researchers (Not Free)
 
I'm looking for a website that offers an extensive library of e-books for researchers. For example, today I'm looking for a complete e-book for The First Global Revolution: A Report by the Council of the Club of Rome by Alexander King & Bertrand Schneider.

I checked the Library of Congress website and didn't see anything about e-books...

What I'm looking for would have to be a site that charges for the service. I'm not expecting to find this for free...

Does anyone know of such a website?

Try bookfinder.com, it is the best search engine for books. Looks like that book is quite expensive. Scribd.com has it in ebook format for free if you want.

I see this is for buying the hard copy of books...

I see it's not the first edition of the book. I understand changes have been made since the book came out in the 70's. I need the original...

Anyone know of a website for paid access to an e-book library?

Never underestimate Project Gutenberg.

Yes, it is mostly classical literature, but they have branched out immensely and.. always Free!

Yes, Scribd is a fantastic source for more modern works, and with a simple login, you can download most of what you read in PDF form.

I first found P.G. in about 1990. To date I have some 1,800 books from there, most of which I have converted to HTML myself (a little "pay it forward" present for my grand kids ;)). I keep about 320 of them online here.

Alan Watt talks about this book a lot. I think it's correct to say that the global warming scam had its beginnings in the book. I believe there are allegations that passages in the book were removed from later editions because of criticism that ensued after the book became well-known.
