What gives?

Complaints were registered on another thread that The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Christian Mysticism, 672 pp., costs $199.95. Two books are reviewed in the last issue of Commonweal.  Gary Dorrien’s Kantian Reason and Hegelian Spirit, 605 pp. long, is published by Oxford University Press, and costs $174.95. Halik Kochanski’s The Eagle Unbowed: Poland and the Poles in the Second World War, 784 pp. long, is published by Harvard University Press and costs $35.00.

Can anyone explain such drastic differences in price?
