|Long Description||Military professionalism has long been an influential but controversial concept in the study of civil-military relations. Investigating the conception, practice, evolution, and consequences of military professionalism in ten Asian countries, this study convincingly advances three propositions. First, old military professionalism is on the rise in Asia as the management of violence becomes the central function of the military. Second, the renewal of old professionalism can be explained by the reduced role of coercion in governance and the shift in the distribution of power against the military. These developments facilitate―indeed compel―the development of a professional and apolitical military. Third, the apolitical orientation of the military is not a consequence of the development of military professionalism as some have argued but rather an outcome of a redistribution of power in favor of political and civil society. Such changes have typically led to the military's exit from politics and the limitation of its role to the security arena. Combining the expertise of military officers and scholars from the region, this volume provides definitive case studies of the military in India, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Vietnam, Pakistan, and Burma. The cases are framed by Muthiah Alagappa's authoritative introduction and conclusion, which contextualize and interpret the country-specific analyses.|

Code39 also known as Code 3 of 9 allows you to encode text using characters A-Z and 0-9 and some punctuation. Using an extended encoding system, it is possible to encode the entire ASCII character set.
Each character is made up of 10 elements where 5 are bars and 5 are spaces. You may have seen this described as 9 elements on other sites where 5 are bars and 4 are spaces but there is always a narrow space stripe between characters which means we might as well consider that trailing narrow space part of each character making the total number of elements 10. The final trailing narrow space simply appears to be absorbed into the quiet zone to the right of the final barcode. There is no check digit in this symbology unlike others. The variation between the width of the bars is what define the value of each character.
In the image below you will notice the start and stop block are the same. In most Code39 fonts,this is encoded as the asterisk (*) character although it is not displayed under the barcode. The text under the barcode is optional and is for human use only. The start and stop asterisks are not decoded when scanned and may or maynot bedisplayed. Also how the text is displayed depends on the process used to create the barcodes. Often, the text is simply under the barcode without the indent displayed in our sample.
Normally, there are only 43 characters that can be encoded using Code39. But if you want to encode the full ASCII characterset, you can prefix letters with special characters to get the characters you need including lower case and special characters. Although it is possible to encode the full ASCII set, if you actually need to do this it is better to use Code128 because it will produce a smaller barcode.
