yeah, but ARCs are put out a few months before the protection copy of the book is available. Think of them as (cheaply) printed betas. They're produced so that reviewers can have their reviews written and in print publications when the book first becomes available, so that marketing people can give them to book buyers to try to convince them to stock more copies of the title, and occasionally as promotional handouts.
 
Depending on the volume they're produced in getting one isn't necessarily that hard. I've got at least one on my book shelves (IIRC 2 but I'm not certain about the 2nd).
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
