Looks like that edition originally listed Palgrave, and it was changed multiple times; I've reverted it back to Palgrave, and updated the page count to 292.

Unless we can definitively prove that cover was not on the pbk edition, I can't change it. It's the original cover image that was imported by a bot. I can create an ACE, though- done here https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/3....

Good point; generally the ACE publication date is set to the current month/year unless we know exactly when the cover was changed, which generally doesn't happen. I'll change this to Feb 2012 since you do have the edition with that cover/pub date in front of you.

Glad I could help!

BTW, this is the actual wording from the help section for adding alternate covers- The publication date for an alternate-cover edition should be the date the book was released with the new cover, not the date the book with that ISBN or ASIN was originally published. The whole section is here https://www.goodreads.com/help/show/8..., if you're interested!
