The most widely read and trusted guide to the C++ language, standard library, and design techniques includes significant new updates and two new appendices on internationalization and Standard Library technicalities. It is the only book with authoritative, accessible coverage of every major element of ISO/ANSI Standard C++.
More than three-quarters of a million programmers have benefited from this book in all of its editions Written by Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of C++, this is the worlds most trusted and widely read book on C++. For this special hardcover edition, two new appendixes on locales and standard library exception safety (also available at www.research.att.com/~bs/) have been added. The result is complete, authoritative coverage of the C++ language, its standard library, and key design techniques. Based on the ANSI/ISO C++ standard, The C++ Programming Language provides current and comprehensive coverage of all C++ language features and standard library components. For example: *abstract classes as interfaces *class hierarchies for object-oriented programming *templates as the basis for type-safe generic software *exceptions for regular error handling *namespaces for modularity in large-scale software *run-time type identification for loosely coupled systems *the C subset of C++ for C compatibility and system-level work *standard containers and algorithms *standard strings, I/O streams, and numerics *C compatibility, internationalization, and exception safety Bjarne Stroustrup makes C++ even more accessible to those new to the language, while adding advanced information and techniques that even expert C++ programmers will find invaluable.

I have purchased the book and I would highly recommend it to all C++ programmers. However, how is it possible that is is almost R400 cheaper to buy this exact book directly from USA (incl import duties). It says that it is a South African publisher. Surely this should make the book cheaper?
