Encyclopedia of Computers and Computer HistoryUser Review - Book Verdict
Aimed at upper-level high school students, college undergraduates, and public library users, this two-volume set attempts to encompass, albeit quite broadly, "every aspect of computers and their history: from personal computing to mainframes to robotics and artificial intelligence; from the theoretical underpinnings of computers to the people and organizations that translate theory into reality." Contributed by a wide cross-section of scholars in the fields of computer science and history of science, the 600 entries range broadly over such topics as important companies, computing machines, software applications, networking concepts, computer research, and laboratories, as well as important individuals in the history of computing. Each entry is accompanied by a list of references for further reading, and a system of cross-referencing (in boldface text) leads readers to more information. The extensive bibliography at the end of Volume 2 suggests even more avenues for advanced study. This work successfully achieves its goal of presenting the history of computing in a highly readable text. Recommended for most libraries.DJoe Accardi, William Rainey Harper Coll.
