"Provides an introduction to computers and computer history that has been sorely missing from reference shelves. The work's 600 entries, many of which represent the first reference treatment of this topic, are intended to make entries accessible to readers while maintaining a consistent level of technical information. The set encompasses nearly every aspect of computers and their history... Essential for undergraduate collections, academic and public libraries, and computer science researchers interested in learning more about the rich field and history of computer science." -- Choice
