Known for his tenacious defense of relational theory in its purest form, Date tackles many topics that are important to database professionals, including the difference between model and implementation, data integrity, data redundancy, deviations in SQL from the relational model, and much more.

Date clearly and patiently explains where many of todays products and practices go wrong, and illustrates some of the trouble you can get into if you don’t carefully think through your use of current database technology.

  • Clearly explains how the unwary practitioner can avoid problems with current relational database technology
