Reviews

Encyclopedic in scope, covering most if not all of the policy decisions one must make in designing an internet that addresses core network needs: longevity, security, availability, economic viability, management, and social needs.... Close to essential as a reference work on the conceptual underpinnings of network design and anecdotes on how things got to where they are today.... Highly recommended.

--Choice

Fascinating.... Clark describes versions of internet architecture that never took off; versions that he wishes he had thought of earlier; and qualities of the current version that he thinks are most conducive to its flexibility, or most inimical to it....
