From explanations of basic structural elements of the Internet to design tips for Web pages, Buchanan (Napier U.) systematically covers the entire range of technological developments related to the Internet, undertaking this Herculean task to present a convenient, in-depth resource for academics and professionals. Material is arranged in two volumes, in nine topical sections (plus a section of appendices) on distributed systems, data communications, networks, network protocols, routers and security, session protocols, network operating systems, world wide web fundamentals, and multimedia and databases. Within each section, bold headings and subheadings identify treated topics, which are clearly presented with basic definitions as well as elaboration of conceptual underpinnings, significance, complexities, applications, and evolution. Appendices provide a variety of reference materials, and the included CD-ROM and associated website give access to even more. B&w illustrations support the text.
