now why are publishers twitching so?

It's Amazon, baby.
And in Britain, anyway, publishers are dropping prices on their own.
Naturally, Amazon is pissed.
"Others accused Amazon of having become particularly aggressive lately. One source claimed that the online seller recently removed the “buy buttons” from a book on its website to prevent users from being able to purchase it. “They then went to the publisher and said, ‘Give us an extra 2 or 3 per cent or we won’t put the buy buttons back’,” the source said."
"Particularly aggressive lately?" What planet are some publishers living on?
