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.

If you are new to the United States, or have lived here your entire life, you may not be aware of the contributions African Americans have made and continue to make to society. In Reckoning with Our African Ancestors: Reclamation and Atonement by Their Descendants, you will find a brief history lesson about who these people were at one time and who they are today.Author Michele L. Albert tells how her people built the United States and are responsible for the concept of democracy and breakthroughs in agriculture, science, medicine, and human rights. Albert contends that her ancestors had their ethereal flame, humanity, culture and civilization stripped away and replaced with a foreign paradigm. Reckoning with Our African Ancestors details Albert's strong introspective walk, as she seeks spiritual answers, enlightenment, and solutions to the baffling situation African people find themselves in not only in the United States but all around the world.It is imperative that people new to this country know about the history, treatment, and struggles of the African Americans. The scenarios described by Albert, no matter how long ago they occurred, still have a profound effect on society. Reckoning with Our African Ancestors provides a chance to discuss African Americans' background and-agree or disagree-encourage open communication.
