Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello,

I have two questions into one. First I would like to know what books are considered the best to introduce the theory of quantum dots, so for example with the k.p method, tight-binding, empirical pseudopotentials, and other techniques, analytical derivations, optical properties, band structure, effect of strain, E-field, B-field, etc.

The second question is that I have a problem with a book that seems interesting and is called:
Theory of Semiconductor Quantum Dots
Band Structure, Optical Properties and Applications

I do not understand why on the official website of the publisher as well as on amazon.com and amazon.de, it is not released yet:

https://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/6173
https://www.amazon.de/dp/9812568816/?coliid=I3IV28660C2ROB&colid=D3T7EUZOFJVK&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
https://www.amazon.com/dp/9812568816/?tag=pfamazon01-20
However in amazon.co.uk or amazon.fr, it seems that it has been there since 2006 and we can order it on the french website (while it is unavailable on the british version):

https://www.amazon.fr/Theory-Semiconductor-Quantum-Dots-Applications/dp/9812568816/ref=sr_1_3?__mk_fr_FR=ÅMÅŽÕÑ&keywords=Theory-Semiconductor-Quantum-Dots-Applications&qid=1559428056&s=gateway&sr=8-3
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Theory-Semiconductor-Quantum-Dots-Applications/dp/9812568816/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Theory+of+Semiconductor+Quantum+Dots:+Band+Structure,+Optical+Properties+And+Applications&qid=1559428154&s=gateway&sr=8-1
I did not find it at the library either but as far as I understand, it is exactly the same book. I do not see any mention that the one not yet published would be a second edition or any different... So I would like to know if someone understands this?

If someone has the book and can confirm it is actually from 2006, I would be thankful to receive an answer and also have an opinion about its quality. It is very expensive and I do not want to buy a book that does not exist!
