A timely, thoughtful masterpiece!
Drs. Bush and Kulkarni are two preeminent network scientists at the General Electric Research Center. Their book is a triumph and a boon for all of us working in networks and allied disciplines. The field of active networks continues to gain in importance and cabins a new dimension in network thought. Their book accomplishes both a thorough and scholarly review of the subject and also gently instructs. The latter includes exercises at chapters' ends and a CDROM. An excellent piece of work that I expect may become a classic.

Excellent and Thorough
With a networking backgroud, I was interested in learning about the basics of Active Networks. I picked up this book in an attempt to dive into the subject, and I am glad that I did.
This book covers all of the basics, properties and priciples of Active Networks. It goes on to discuss the theory behind the network management aspects of an Active Network. A topic that I've not found covered in any other books that I've searched for.
The included CD also gives all the source code you'll need to set up and implement some of the topics that are discussed in the book.
All in all it's a good read and definitly worth being on my bookshelf!
