More About This Textbook


The Best of the Best: Fifty Years of Communications and Networking Research consists of a group of 50 papers selected as the best published by ComSoc in its various journals in the Society’s 50-year history. The editors of the collection have written an essay to introduce the papers and discuss the historical significance of the collection and how they were selected for the collection.

The book divides the papers into two major categories (Communications and Networking) and groups them by decade within these major subdivisions.
