There is plenty of mathematics here, making this a book for specialists (a result of the author's experience teaching undergraduates at Oxford). Between the formulas, though, the author conveys a genuine enthusiasm for his subject and for the history of cryptography. The text includes an extensive bibliography of sources in the field.
'This authoritative book has a well structured approach. ...essential reading for the engineer concerned with safe-guarding as well as communicating information.' IEE Review
' an exciting introduction to codes and cryptography,but also manages to provide clear introductory accounts to a number of vitally important and closely related mathematical topics the most significant of which is computational complexity...It is surprising that a book can contain such a high
rate of information per page and still be readable...This excellent book can be strongly recommended to anyone with the appropriate mathematical background.'Times Higher Education Supplement
