Long DescriptionThe present international order is characterized by the rapid globalization of economic activity, by systematic attempts to coordinate state responses to the outbreaks of violence as well as by unilateral military interventions against sovereign states either by the USA or by one of its regional allies. Secessionist movements have adapted to this international order in a variety of ways. In the past decade, secessionist movements have also taken advantage of the readiness of states to militarily intervene in order to gain international legitimacy and recognition. This collection explores the changes that the current international order has brought to the theory and practice of recognition of secessionist claims and to the conditions for secessionist mobilization.The chapters in this book address one or other of the following four interdependent questions: How do independence movements achieve legitimacy amongst both their target populations and outside states; How do the forces of increasing economic globalization and political interdependence impact on secessionist mobilization? How do the outside states, in the post-colonial era, recognize the independence of new states? and, How can the claims to independent statehood be justified within normative theories of secession and international law? These questions are explored both through comparative analysis within legal, international relations and political science frameworks and through an examination of several recent attempts at secession.

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number. Originally this was a 10 digit number known as ISBN-10, but has been replaced with a 13 digit version known as ISBN-13 (aka EAN-13) to better fit in with the industry standard product numbering system.

The ISBN system offers a unique numbering system for books and publications of various types. ISBN offers 9 identification digits for each book or publication and one check digit. ISBN-13 expands the available number set by doubling the available numbers. You might think that the extra three digits would more than double the available numbers but ISBN is limited within the EAN-13 numbering system and will always start with 978 or 979 as the first three digits, leaving only 9 more digits for the actual identification digits and again the last digit is the check digit.

Any ISBN-10 number can be converted to ISBN-13. Any ISBN-13 number that starts with 978 can be converted back to ISBN-10. ISBN-13 numbers that start with 979 cannot be converted to ISBN-10.

The conversion process from ISBN-10 to ISBN-13 is a rather simple one. Start with the first 9 digits of the ISBN-10 number, place 978 in front and calculate the new check digit using the standard EAN check digit calculation.

If you want to calculate the check digit for ISBN-10, that is done using a MOD-11 calculation that is very different than the EAN check digit process.


Look at the number above and below the barcode. You will see that except for the last digit in the ISBN number, all of the digits exist in the 13 digit version shown under the barcode right after the 978 and just before the new check digit of 5.

Now you can see how easy it is to convert between ISBN-10 and ISBN-13.
