International editions of Textbooks
What's an International Edition Textbook?
An International Edition Textbook is simply the international counterpart to a US
Edition. Most international editions have slightly different covers, many have different
ISBNs on the outside covers (although some have the same ISBN as the US edition
on the inside), but are still printed on high-quality paper.
International Edition textbooks may have an international label on the cover.
These books were originally created to be sold in different regions, like England.
International edition textbooks have the same pagination and contents as the US
Edition. All units, page numbers, and problem sets are guaranteed to be
the same, or your money back.
In some cases, the book is EXACTLY identical in all respects to the US Edition,
except for the word "International" printed on the cover.
If you are unsatisfied with your International Edition book for any reason, you
may return it for a 100% refund of the ITEM COST.
Why do you sell International Edition Textbooks?

a chemistry book. They're happier buying the same book for $50.00 as an international
Wait a minute, is it legal to buy International Edition Textbooks?
Yes! Textbook publishers would love to have people think otherwise, but courts have
time and again asserted your right to purchase international editions. Still unsure?
The United States Supreme Court recently ruled on this issue. You can read a New York Times article about their decision.
Why are International Edition Textbooks so much cheaper?
Just like prescription medicine, textbooks are much cheaper overseas than in the
US. TextbooksRus.com gets a hold of these books and passes the savings on to you!

What about CD's and online access codes? Do International Editions come with these?
In most cases, yes. In rare cases, the CD may not be included. If the CD is not
included with the book, this will be made clear on the product detail page. If you
are sure you will need the CD to complete your class and want to make sure the book

Most professors do not require these materials since many used books do not come
This all sounds great, but I'm still not sure because I've never bought an International
Edition Textbook before.
