Unfortunately, the subject is a bit outside of our collection scope and funds for buying new books are pretty tight at the moment as we approach the end of the fiscal year. So unfortunately we won’t be able to purchase a copy at this time but if you need this one for your research I would recommend ordering it from another library through our free Interlibrary Loan service: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/find/document-delivery/request-form Books that are available to be borrowed from other Canadian libraries are generally delivered to SFU for pick up in about 4 – 8 days.

Hope this helps and please let me know if you have any questions.
Best wishes, Hope
