The Price Is Right

51acez+bCWL._SL160_.jpgThis week historian Ben Wilson and Faber & Faber launched a literary experiment, releasing “What Price Liberty?” as a pay-what-you-like e-book.

For the next six weeks, Wilson will offer the book on a website where readers can pay as much or as little as they like for the book.
