Rami, the Amazon link on your blog leads to the info that they don't have the book and don't know how to get it.

How do we organize distributing this book in the USA?

I want to sell it on my blog. Any ideas?

I've written an Amazon review, but if people can't buy it there, doesn't help much.

THere are political issues with Amazon as well. Powell's books in Oregon is an independent bookstore with a good online presence, but I don't know how you organize getting your physical book to them to be sold. ???

The book is sold in Lebanon through Levant distributors who make the connection with Amazon. There was a problem with the isbn number, and amazon stopped ordering it. We have fixed the problem (a printer's problem) and have a new isbn, and amazon should start re-selling, but they haven't yet. I don't know when they will, because it took them weeks to display it when it was published.

I am happy to explore any alternative. So far, I've been mailing them from Lebanon.

If you want to try Powell's Books you need to send:
1 sample copy
your name, address, phone, email
price, including discounts
book summary
other distributors
shipping guidelines
return policy to

Powell's Books
Purchasing Department
2720 NW 29th Ave
Portland, OR 97210

They keep the copy and if you don't hear from them within I think 8 - 12 weeks, the answer is no.
