Abstract

   This article originally appeared in Volume 2 Number 12, (December
   1992) of Matrix News, the monthly newsletter of Matrix Information
   and Directory Services, Inc. (MIDS).

1.  Which Books

   Here is a list of books related to using the Internet, which is the
   global and exponentially growing network of more than a million
   computers that communicate by interactive use of the TCP/IP
   protocols, for the use of millions of users.  This article was
   prompted by the recent publication of nine or ten books on the
   Internet in the space of a year (some are so new they aren't even
   published yet).  I have also included some books that have been
   around for quite a long time (as long ago as the dim past of 1984).
   I think all of them contain useful information for people new to the
   Internet.

   Some of the books included here are about more than the Internet.
   Some of them are about the Matrix, which is the set of all computer
   networks worldwide that exchange electronic mail.  The Matrix
   includes FidoNet, UUCP, BITNET, USENET, the Internet, and many
   others, but is not limited to any one of those networks.  This
   particular bibliographic collection is oriented around the largest
   computer network in the world, the Internet, because of all the
   recent books about that network.  Matrix News continues to publish
   information about the Matrix, including but not limited to the
   Internet.
