Synopsis: Presenting the history of the cellular phone from its beginnings in the 1940s to the present, this book explains the fundamental concepts involved in wireless communication along with the ramifications of cellular technology on the economy, U.S. and international law, human health, and society. The first two chapters deal with bandwidth and radio. Subsequent chapters look at precursors to the contemporary cellphone, including the surprisingly popular car phone of the 1970s, the analog cellphones of the 1980s and early 1990s, and the basic digital phones which preceded the feature-laden, multipurpose devices of today.

About the Author: Guy Klemens holds a doctorate in electrical engineering and has worked in various aspects of the wireless communication field for more than 15 years. His experience includes the design and testing of antennas for satellite links, the measurement and reduction of energy lost to the user's head by cellular phones, and the design of high-frequency components (most microscopic in size.)
