Notes: Essays by people involved with the Internet. Strong on protocols, weak on direction. The book is divided into four parts. The first section deals with an historical and organizational background to the Internet. The second section, written by the people who built the Internet, deals with technical aspects of the major protocols and applications of the Internet. Part three, "Infrastructure," covers issues not centrally relevant to the operation of the Internet, but supporting its use: network performance and management, backbone and node tools, directory services and operational security. The bibliographic information contained in the book overall might be worth the price alone. Quarterman's contribution is carefully and fully researched and well organized. It includes not only texts, but periodicals and online sources as well.
