Why don't these small-print-run academic books come out in Kindle format?

Careful what you wish for. Routledge often does Kindle editions of these kinds of books. For example:
http://www.amazon.com/Politics-Differen ... B0053D6FGW
Hardcover: $148. Kindle: $112 (no, that's not a typo: one hundred and twelve). The budget rental price: $51.41. Absurd, and infuriating - Routledge has got plenty of academic titles that I'd happily buy if they were in the $10-15 range, but at $112, is ANYONE buying them? Heck, at that price I don't even order it for my university library, because I feel guilty about asking them to spend that kind of money.
