Book Reviews (PDF)
August 1979 (vol. 12 no. 8)
pp. 111
This book's title should intrigue any communication system designer or scientist. However, the contents fail to live up to its implied promises. Rather than illustrating the concepts and rationale of all possible architectures for distributed systems, the book focuses on a single, specific, IBM-developed architecture?SNA. As a result, it fails to qualify as either a general textbook or a ready reference book in the fast-developing field of distributed systems.
