?A much expanded version of Cortada's Annotated Bibliography on the History of Data Processing. Almost anything that fits the subject can be found here: books and chapters in books, articles from research journals along with pieces from popular magazines. Two features make this work commendable, especially for the nonexpert: the introductory pages for the various sections, which do a good job of explaining the scope of each part; and the annotations--most are informative even when short. Cortada's book is recommended for large undergraduate or graduate libraries.?-Choice
