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.

Amazon Editorial Reviews
... this book is rich in information, allegation, and argument. Moreover, its forthright tone balances the indulgent piety of much other writing on the ANC and SACP." ―SouthScan
... a fascinating and indispensable account of how the inner workings of the South African Communist Party affected its problematic role in and ambiguous impact on the antiapartheid struggle." ―Choice
... extraordinary.... Possibly the most original contribution in a decade to the literature on South African politics." ―Foreign Affairs
Using insider knowledge and previously unavailable information, the authors describe how the Communist Party took over leadership of the ANC during the time when both organizations were banned in South Africa and forced to establish their headquarters in exile. The book also discusses the guerrilla army set up jointly by the two organizations in 1961 under the command of Nelson Mandela.
