Early History Data Networks (Perspectives)
This book gives a fascinating glimpse of the many documented attempts throughout history to develop effective means for long–:distance communications. The oldest attempts date back to millennia before Christ, and include ingenious uses of homing pigeons, mirrors, flags, torches, and beacons.
