What Happened to Amazon Book Search?

Does anyone know what happened to the very helpful and effective Amazon Book Search?

Its now gone missing from the main pages.

For keywords, I used to take advantage of the Amazon.com site as a fast and easy research tool. Want to know what books Paul Volcker is in? Care to see where a certain piece of legislation — say, the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 — has been analyzed, discussed, debated?

Amazon.con was great for that — they had a huge run of books spidered for search.

Now, the Volcker search brings up only books he coauthored — but the CFMA search still works.

The substitute is now Google Books — but they have a are far less updated and extensive database — so far — than Amazon.com did.
