Introductory texts:

   Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig, "Artificial Intelligence: A Modern
   Approach", Prentice Hall, 1994. 840 pages, $57.95. [Uses
   intelligent agents as a unifying theme.  Currently the most widely
   used textbook.  Excellent depth, incredible breadth.]

   Intelligence: Theory and Practice", Benjamin/Cummings, 1994. 680
   pages, ISBN 0-8053-25476. [Lisp/Scheme/C++ code is available from]

   Publishers, 1993, ISBN 1-55860-221-6, 430 pages, $49.95. 
      [Topics include search, knowledge representation, logic,
      assumption-based truth maintenance, nonmonotonic reasoning,
      probability, frames, semantic nets, planning, learning, vision,
      natural language processing, and expert systems.]

   Structures and Strategies for Complex Problem Solving", 2nd
   Edition, The Benjamin/Cummings Publishing Company, Inc., 1993.
   720 pages, ISBN 0-8053-4780-1.
   [Includes algorithms implemented in Lisp and Prolog.]

   Ian Pratt, "Artificial Intelligence", Macmillan, London, 1994. 280
   pages, ISBN 0-333-59755-9 ($35). [In-depth introduction to several
   AI topics, using inference as a central theme. As a result, omits
   topics like NLP, expert systems, vision, and robotics. Hence this
   book is a good themed introduction to a subset of AI, but is not
   suitable for a general purpose overview of AI.]

   Elaine Rich & Kevin Knight, "Artificial Intelligence", 2nd edition,
   McGraw-Hill, New York, 1991. ISBN 0-07-052263-4. [One of the more
   popular introductory texts to AI, giving a very good general
   overview of most AI topics. In some places the book sacrifices
   depth for breadth, and a few more recent topics are neglected.
   Nevertheless this book provides an excellent foundation in areas
   central to AI. Source code is available from]
