The Internet Under the Hood by Robert Molyneux

The Internet Under the Hood by Robert Molyneux may become a great basic introduction to the concepts of network applications. Being published in 2003 and designed for librarians, educators and information professionals, with a different level of technology experience, now this edition may serve a sort of reference purpose. As it was mentioned in Library Resources & Technical Services Book Review (Swanson & Gregory, 2005) the author provides “with bibliographies for future reading” and is “combining information on aspects of his subject that are generally found in several different types of works into one book”. Four sections: Overview, Technology, Applications and Social issues are complemented with some case studies and additional information about privacy, legal issues and intellectual property related to Internet use.
