Digital Communications

E. Lee and D. MesserschmittDigital Communications, Kluwer Academic Publishers 1988 second edition 1993. A well-known reference work, used in graduate courses at many universities. Its scope is very broad
J.G. Proakis "Digital Communications" McGraw Hill 1983, 1989(cover image)
This frequently cited book appears to be one of the standard texts on modern digital transmission. Its scope is much broader than transmission over radio channels. It contains one chapter on Digital Transmission over Fading Multipath Channels and one on Spread Spectrum Signals. Its coverage of channel modelling is not so deep.
Yoshihiko Akaiwa Introduction to Digital Mobile Communication, John Wiley & Sons, Incorporated. Sept 1997 512p.

W.C.Y. Lee "Mobile Communication Design Fundamentals"John Wiley and Sons, New York 1993. (cover image) Most books by Bill Lee are easily readable and useful to many engineers in the field. It is more focussed on network operator issues than on equipment manufacturer issues. For university students it may serve as a first introduction to mobile communications

W. C. Jakes, Jr., Ed., "Microwave Mobile Communications", John Wiley and Sons, New York 1974 For a long time this was about the only in-depth book on mobile communications. Many of the earlier journal papers on mobile communications refer to this book. Its contents have formed the basis for many newer books on wireless. A new edition appeared in 1994.
J.D. Parsons"The Mobile Radio Propagation Channel" Halsted Press (John Wiley and Sons), New York 1992 (cover image)
An up-to-date reference on mobile propagation, covering both large-scale path loss models and fading multipath effects. Indoor and short-range (micro/pico) cellular propagation receives less attention.
