Correction of the week

From the Economist, 21 January issue, page 82:
Clarification  In our review of “Julian Assange: The Unauthorised Autobiography” (“Leaker’s Leak”, October 1st 2011), we said that Swedish prosecutors wished to question Mr Assange “in two cases of rape”. In fact, Mr Assange is accused of one offence of rape, two offences of sexual molestation and one offence of unlawful coercion. We are happy to make this clear.
Happy? They sound ecstatic.

According to the Guardian, in its first week the book sold 644 copies in the UK. Canongate, its publisher, had paid Assange an advance of £412,000.
