Over 6 million ISBNs and ISBN barcodes are listed. The ISBN format was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISBNs are 10 or 13 digit numbers that uniquely identify a book by its title, publisher, and format. ISBN bar codes are just a bar code display of the ISBN number. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and were originally 10 digit numbers. In 2007, ISBN numbers changed to 13 digit numbers so the system wouldn't run out of ISBN numbers to assign. The ISBN number is typically found on the back cover of the book along with the ISBN barcode that represents that number. The ISBN number can also typically be found on one of the first few pages of the book where the publisher and copyright information is listed.

Each edition of a book and each format of a book has a different ISBN number. This is very useful when searching for the softcover edition or the hardcover edition of a book. It is also useful for college students searching for the correct edition of a college textbook for their university class.

Product Description
This study examines the evolution of the European Defense "Identity" (EDI) in the context of the changing security environment of the post-Cold War period. It discusses competing approaches to constructing the EDI, as well as key U.S. goals that bear on U.S. policy toward the EDI. These goals include retaining NATO's primacy as the forum for security discussions among the Allies and as the exclusive means for organizing the defense of NATO territory, while strengthening the ability of the European Allies to act outside NATO, either as a U.S. partner or independently if the U.S. chooses not to act. The authors recommend a two-pronged strategy: foster NATO's evolution to maintain its relevance and effectiveness, while seeking to shape the emerging EDI in ways compatible with U.S. interests and objectives. One aspect of this strategy is to accept that the EDI can become the defense arm of the European Community (EC). This would not necessarily harm U.S. interests, so long as the EC does not neglect the security needs of Central and Eastern European countries. As the emerging democracies in Central and Eastern Europe develop links with the EDI, the U.S. should support extending NATO ties as well, including NATO membership to preserve the congruence of the EC and NATO security guarantees.
