Comrnunicotion Systems Principles is an attempt by the author to develop a single text for the variety of courses now being offered to seniors and first year graduate students interested in communications. The book contains little that is new, few surprises, and nothing that this reviewer has not seen in a similar form elsewhere. It is these characteristics: which surprisingly, make the book attractive. Because, what Professor Peebles appears to have done is sift through the voluminous literature on communications including both textbooks and journals, extract the clearest, most lucid explanations or communication systems phenomena, and present these explanations in an integrated fashion so that the book can be used as an effective teaching tool.
