FREEDOM TO THE BOOKS!!
Robert De Beaugrande
I'mglad to announce the free distribution of my 'big' books to be downloaded gratis from my website, which has become
(no www. for some reason)
If I advocate 'freedom of access to knowledge and society' (see especially my newest book listed below), I cannot address people in expensive or hard-to-find books. The following are already available, scanned, edited, reformatted, and broken down into webpages under 300 kb for easy download and free use. They may be quoted, translated, or downloaded onto CD without the author's permission. An occasional thank-you note would be appreciated, though, to

If you or someone you know lives in a region where internet use is hard or even dangerous and wants a book, get me an e-mail and a safe postal address, and I'll mail them the a CD for free. Contact: beaugrande at terrra.com.br
