|Long Description||Carlo Bastasin, an economist and journalist, reveals the unknown events that have happened behind the scenes in European capitals during the ongoing financial crisis, beginning in 2008 with the collapse of major financial institutions. He argues that the crisis in the euro-zone has a political origin in the abuses of national politics unable to cope with the pressure of globalization. Moreover, the crisis is reinforced even now by the obstinate defense of national prerogatives in politics and finance and by the lack of commitment for shared or supranational sovereignty. While the consensus view is that monetary union was a flawed project and must be amended, Bastasin shows that the failures have to do almost entirely with national opportunism —not only in Greece but everywhere, not least in Germany. Saving Europe is the first major book on these momentous developments and their likely ramifications. Bastasin's compelling work is an engrossing historical chronicle, weaving moments of high drama with individual personalities on the world stage. Germany chancellor Angela Merkel, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, and British prime minister Gordon Brown play central roles. This is also a scholarly attempt to make larger sense of what happened —and what could happen next. Given the critical role and importance of Europe within the world economy as well as growing speculation that the euro might disappear, this is essential reading for anyone trying to grasp international economics. Just as important, it is a fascinating tale of people, personalities, and power. There is no other book like it.|

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.
