Since Google describes these as "Limited previews", that is not

Perhaps you should contact MIT Press directly, since they are 
the copyright holder for these books?

Side question-- I've noticed that for cookbooks (and other 
categories of books) which I own, the copyright is held by the
*author*, not the publisher. In contrast, for programming language
books in my collection, the publisher is almost always the copyright
owner. (The one exception that I noticed in a quick perusal of my 
library tonight is Queinnec's Lisp in Small Pieces, where Queinnec 
is apparently owner of the copyright for the original French text, but 
Cambridge owns the copyright for the English language edition.) Just 
curious: why is the copyright for CS books owned by the publisher, 
rather than the author(s)?
