Nice catch, it's been this way since 9474dd7ed6988924 which was committed in
May 1999.  The book does actually have a subtitle though, which is "Classical
Database Systems". Fixed in the attached.

No fair, I only looked at the back of the spine, not at the front page, so I missed the actual subtitle :P
