The New Books and Multimedia column contains brief reviews of new books in the fields of computer networks, communications networks, and wireless networks. Each review includes a highly abstracted description of the contents, relying on the publisher¿s descriptive materials, minus advertising superlatives, and checked for accuracy against a copy of the book. The reviews also comment on the structure and the target audience of each book. Publishers wishing to have their books listed in this manner should contact Yu Cheng at the email address below. Appropriate books will be reviewed in the column.
