Fight between Amazon and publisher may be ending

NEW YORK (AP) — A standoff between Amazon.com and a leading publisher that has limited the availability of Andrew Young's "The Politician" and a wide range of other books may be ending.

CEO John Sargent of Macmillan, which has been fighting Amazon over e-book prices, released a memo Thursday saying that a resolution was "near at hand."

Since last Friday night, Amazon has stopped selling new copies and electronic editions of Young's best-seller about former presidential candidate John Edwards and of works by Barbara Ehrenreich, Jonathan Franzen and other Macmillan authors.
