| Introduction |

This is the first realease of The Unofficial Internet Book List
*Not* in English Language.
The idea comes from Kevin Savetz, author of "The Unofficial Internet
Booklist", the more extensive bibliography about Internet Books.
I have tried to come up with a comprehensive list of non-English books
about the Internet. I have added every bit of information that I have
either found or received from friends, authors and publishers.
Please excuse me if in this version there is more information about
Italian Books and Publishers than in other languages.
I'm Italian, so you can understand that it's easier for me to find
related data regarding my own Country.
I hope that whoever reads this document will kindly send me information
about Internet books published in non-English languages anywhere
in the world.
I will appreciate it if you send me book reviews.
If you know about a book that may be particularly useful or could have
a special meaning for readers, do not hesitate to ask me to publish
a review in the section "A very special book".
Thanks in advance for all the help that you will be able to provide.

Giuseppe Salza - Che cosa ci faccio in Internet ? - Theoria Ed.
by Kay Martha Quittan

"A book on cybernetic education from the Harrison Ford-like of
cyberspace" (La Stampa, May 13, 1995).
Here is a fascinating book, not merely a guide detailing how to
get connected to the Internet, although it also features a wealth
of technical data. The book is a journey to the "real" Internet.
It travels to the human side of the Net, towards the otherworldly
universe of cyberspace, where millions of people can lead a
parallel life aside from the "real" one. This book lead us to
a world of democracy, a free world, providing a wealth of information
that everyone will be able to access and decode. It includes
a mervelous love story over the wires, the history of Internet
and its pioneers, several peculiar tales in the lives of net-surfers
and a diary-like account of exciting experiences while travelling
in the Net.
In short, this book is the manifesto of the *NeXt Generation*.

Notes    : Taken from the Apogeo catalog (Galactica BBS):
           "Rather than waiting for the so-called *information highways*,
           businesses are already widely relying on the Internet for
           corporate communication and marketing. Internet is a
           *many-to-many* interface, thereby allowing a hi-tech substrate
           and high cultural content. It is a vital vehicle for small-to
           mid-businesses who specialize in value-added products.
           This book explains the technology and the culture of the
           Internet, and tells businesses how to put content on the
           Internet, how to promote it and to sell it.
           It is a must for businesses that want to enter this new media
           with the right step."

           "In this fascinating guide to the online culture and sub-culture
           throughout the planet, the authors allow readers to travel
           to the most unusual areas of Internet, from the Gutenberg
           project to outer space aliens, from the hackers universe to
           the small and large BBSs, from cybersex hype to neo-paganism.
           Also detailed are several Net resources, discussion groups,
           worldwide chat, MUDs and other virtual universes.
           To illustrate this incredible journey which takes readers

           the free expression universe of Internet."

Title    : Da DOS a UNIX

Publisher: APOGEO
ISBN     : 88-7303-105-6
Price    : 38,000 Lire
Pages    : 352

Notes    : Taken from the Apogeo catalog (Galactica BBS):
           "UNIX, the most powerful OS, widely used in telecom corporations,
           has awakened the interest of other platform users (DOS, Mac
           and so on) thanks to dialup IP connections to the Internet,
           which is widely based - as everyone knows - on UNIX platforms.
           This book intends to simplify the transition from MD-DOS to UNIX
           and wishes to demistify the complexity of the latter. ®Da DOS
           a UNIX is not aimed at programmers and computer experts,
           but rather at readers who only need to have scarce knowledge
           on how DOS works.
           This book also includes the most widely used UNIX commands
           on the Internet, including a description and their rules."

           "Inside the cyberspace universe of the Internet, the user
           can find a wealth of resources to retrieve data or information.
           However, this huge universe of information is hard to navigate
           without the appropriate tools that allow to search and focus
           on the information needed. This book introduces the most popular
           Internet search tools (Archie, Gopher, Veronica, WAIS,
           WWW, Mosaic, and so on) and sets itself as a benchmark for
           anyone who wishes to access to the millions of computers
           connected to the ®mother of all networks¯.
           After reading this book, you will be able to find even the
