I tracked this book down at the SOAS library yesterday, and decided to purchase a copy online. It is out of print, but available used in many places. I found a bookseller in India who had it in stock (over the fantastic—formerly German—choosebooks.com). Less than £10, including shipping. I wonder how long mail takes to travel this distance? Anyway, the title is:
