Sorry I took so long to reply Lord Oda, you can't buy it on Amazon but you can get it here, either in pdf form (a lot cheaper) or as a paper back as I did :).
Have a question about a book or academic article before you buy it? Maybe I have it!
Check out my library here for a list of Chinese history resources I have on hand and my tumblr to see if I have reviewed it!

I recommend trying inter library loan to get De Crespigny's book on Cao Cao. It's worth a buy if you got money to spare and really are interested, but otherwise it's kind of expensive. A lot of the information is also redundant in the sense that it is found elsewhere in De Crespigny's writings or just from reading other things in general.

The Leban dissertation is great and I would highly recommend that as well.
