The Booths developed the Automatic Relay Computer (ARC) in England during the late 1940s, as well as a number of other computers. They were inspired in part by the work of John Von Neumann, whom they visited in Princeton in 1946-7. The present work is a study of state of computing at the time it was written. The bibliography is quite comprehensive.
