How can I cite a book chapter I wrote, but was betrayed over?

In getting ready to update my CV for a big deal application, I just learned (via the table of contents view on Amazon) that I was dropped as the co-author on a book chapter that I wrote for a professor. What is the best way to put this on my CV, now that I know "in press" is replaced by "so long sucker"? And as a junior person in academia, how do I keep this from happening again?

Extra info: I have changed fields significantly, so pushing this as an issue with Prof. X will not help me and is something I'm not interested in. Also, I had filled out papers with the publisher early on, and had moved departments in the institution, so I suspect when it came time to sign the final papers he was either too lazy to coordinate it to keep me, or he had always planned to drop me and did so.
BTW, I think the chapter wasn't that great (since I wrote it), and don't terribly mind not having my name on it. I just don't want to put that much work into something again and lose out on the credit.
