From School Library Journal Grade 9 UpAA thorough introduction to the history of cryptology that explains the fundamental concepts of this science. Newton provides concise, easy-to-read definitions of terms, topics, and personalities pertinent to the history of encoded messages. Entries are arranged alphabetically and often include cross-references and suggestions for further reading. Black-and-white illustrations, photographs, and charts assist in the comprehension of terms. While there are many books aimed at certain aspects of this topic, none of them do as good a job of presenting a comprehensive yet accessible overview of secret-message writing throughout ancient and modern times.AJ. B. MacDonald, Milner Library, Illinois State University, Normal, ILCopyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal Former science and math teacher Newton (Global Warming, LJ 3/15/94) has written a fascinating compendium of cryptology, the science of secret writing. More than 550 alphabetically arranged entries trace the role of cryptology, from its earliest uses in the 4th century B.C.E. to its present-day application in electronic information warfare. Comprehensive in scope, Newton's work examines cryptology's role in military communications, financial transactions, and more scholarly areas such as archaeology, linguistics, literature, and theology. The use of invisible ink, microdots, cryptograms, and modern data-encryption methods are presented, along with an intriguing examination of codes and ciphers that have defied even the greatest minds for centuries. Many of the entries include cross references and suggested further readings. Exceptional content, an extensive bibliography, and a comprehensive subject index make this volume an invaluable reference tool. Recommended for most academic and public libraries.?Joe J.
