“ Modern Theory and Practice in Radio Communication.” By Assistant Professor Gordon D. Robinson, U. S. N. A., Department of Electrical Engineering, United States Naval Academy, and Lieut. Commander Paul L. Holland, U. S. Navy, Department of Electrical Engineering, United States Naval Academy.
The student of radio, or of any other subject, often finds it necessary to search through several books to find a particular phase of the subject covered in a lucid manner. One chapter may be good and the next rather vague. An effort has been made in this book to bring out certain points which will make the book appeal to all classes of radio students. The phases of the subject which are most often vague, or entirely omitted, have been fully covered and explained in accordance with modern theory.
Attention is called to the following points:
The electron theory is the basis of explanation of numerous phenomena. This is in accord with modern theory and renders the explanation in many cases quite simple.
The subject of wave propagation, with attendant phenomena, is discussed at length.
