Previous owners' inscription to the first blank. Gently bruised at the head, tail and corners of the binding.

This classic best-seller has been totally rewritten to reflect the networks of the late 1990s and beyond. Author, educator, and researcher Andrew S. Tanenbaum, winner of the ACM Karl V. Karlstrom Outstanding Educator Award, carefully explains how networks work inside, from the hardware technology up through the most popular network applications. The book takes a structured approach to networking, starting at the bottom (the physical layer) and gradually working up to the top (the application layer). The topics covered include: Physical layer (e.g., copper, fibre, radio, and satellite communication); Data link layer (e.g., protocol principles, HDLC, SLIP, and PPP); MAC Sublayer (e.g., IEEE 802 LANs, bridges, new high-speed LANs); Network layer (e.g., routing, congestion control, internetworking, IPv6); Transport layer (e.g., transport protocol principles, TCP, network performance); Application layer (e.g., cryptography, email, news, the Web, Java, multimedia) In each chapter, the necessary principles are described in detail, followed by extensive examples taken from the Internet, ATM networks, and wireless networks.”Notes: Size: 9½" x 7".

The Emperor's Codes: Bletchley Park and the Breaking of Japan's Secret Ciphers by Michael Smith (£10.50)Publisher: London, New York, Toronto, Sydney & Auckland: Bantam Press — 2000Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0593046412]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “The extraordinary wartime exploits of the British codebreakers based at Bletchley Park continue to fascinate and amaze. In his bestselling Station X Michael Smith brought us the astonishing true story of the breaking of the Enigma Cipher. In The Emperor’s Codes he continues the story as he examines how Japan’s codes were broken, and the consequences for the Second World War.

The Emperor’s Codes moves across the world from Bletchley Park to Pearl Harbor; from Singapore to Colombo; and from Mombasa to Melbourne, describing not just how the Japanese codes and ciphers were broken but how the lives of the codebreakers, both professional and personal, were affected. It tells the stories of John Tiltman, the eccentric British soldier turned codebreaker who made many of the early breaks into Japanese diplomatic and military codes; Eric Nave, the Australian sailor recruited to work for the British who pioneered breakthroughs in Japanese naval codes; and of Oshima Hiroshi, the hard-drinking Japanese ambassador to Berlin, whose candid reports to Tokyo of his conversations with Hitler and other high-ranking Nazis were a major source of intelligence in the war against Germany. Many of these revelations have been made possible only through using recently declassified British files, through privileged access to Australian secret official histories, and interviews with an unprecedented number of British, American and Australian codebreakers.

Where previous books on the subject have emphasized the role played by the Americans, The Emperor’s Codes is the first full account of the critical role played by British and Australian codebreakers. Using the memories of those at the forefront of this battle, Michael Smith reveals a gripping and previously untold story from the Second World War.”

But Britain’s war with Germany meant their plans for marriage had to be postponed. Hill was posted to Hong Kong, and sensing that he was caught up in the sweep of great events, he began a diary. However, officers serving abroad were forbidden to keep such records, so Hill devised a secret code that transformed his words into numbers. The Donald Hill who returned from the war, after four years in a prisoner of war camp, was a dramatically changed man. Tortured by savage flashbacks, he was confined to hospital. Pamela had always known that the numbers in the school book were a code, and that somewhere within the lines of figures she would discover the key to understanding Donald’s mental collapse. Eventually, after Donald’s death, she found a mathematician who was able decode the diary and reveal its account of Donald’s suffering in the camps.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".
