Choice Review

The 25 well-selected chapters by 32 experts in the field help to make this handbook a standard in the field. This definitive work spans almost every major area within the broad field of radar, and this second edition represents a significant updating, taking into account the continuing (r)evolution toward digital systems, the decreased dependency on radar operators (i.e., automatic systems), the increased emphasis on reduced cross-section in military applications (e.g., aircraft that are radar invisible), the refining of electronic countermeasures (ECM) and electronic counter-countermeasures (ECCM), and a host of other new developments. Although notation conventions used are not consistent from chapter to chapter, this should not cause difficulty for readers who have a basic knowledge of radar. Indeed, the first several chapters impart such basic knowledge, although the handbook does not attempt to be a textbook. Unmatched in its breadth and authoritative presentation; a must for libraries serving advanced undergraduate and graduate students. -M. S. Roden, California State University, Los Angeles
