Synopsis: For undergraduate courses on the Internet. This book examines the Internet piece by piece, giving students a holistic perspective and understanding of this communications phenomenon. It provides technical information on the Internet and explores other Internet-related issues, such as other people's perceptions of the Internet, its impact on society, and the reason for its existence.
From the Inside Flap: Preface
The rise of the Internet is not a random occurrence within the timeline of human events. Rather, it is a logical coalescing of technologies, services, and human interactions. To many, the Internet is a mysterious "ether" through which requests are transmitted and from which responses are received. Fortunately, the mystery can be dispelled. This book examines the Internet piece by piece to give the reader a holistic perspective and understanding of this communications phenomenon. It is in the spirit of viewing the whole as the sum (and more!) of its parts that this book was written.
Although technical in nature, the material is suitable as an introduction for readers with a beginning to intermediate understanding of communications and the Internet, and as a reference for the advanced reader. Compensation for the time-sensitive nature of the information contained within this book is partially provided by placing the information within its proper context relative to past, present, and future Internet events.
The book is composed of five distinct sections: introduction (Chapter 1), basic technologies (Chapters 2-4), applications and services (Chapters 5-8), security and evolving technologies (Chapter 9), and conclusion. In addition to the technical information provided, the text explains other Internet-related issues, such as other people's perceptions of the Internet, its impact on society, and the reason for its existence.
Several key pedagogical features provide the reader with a consistent set of learning aids with which to successfully absorb the material. The chapter introductions and summaries, for example, guide the reader from one topic to another. Chapter learning objectives, figures, tables, and examples provide the reader with a thorough discussion of the current topic. A comprehensive list of additional Internet-related resources is provided in the appendices.
