This acclaimed revision of a classic database systems text offers a complete background in the basics of database design, languages, and system implementation. It provides the latest information combined with real-world examples to help readers master concepts. All concepts are presented in a technically complete yet easy-to-understand style with notations kept to a minimum. A running example of a bank enterprise illustrates concepts at work. To further optimize comprehension, figures and examples, rather than proofs, portray concepts and anticipate results.
