 Builds on What Codd has Done - not Overthroughs it

Any professor or student in the database or data integration field simply must read this book. It contains a general and precise definition for a data model. It also explains what are the properties we want for a good data model in the database arena. The set model is devised as the true generalization of the relational model. The complex objects fit there naturally without turning back to the pre-relational hierarchical databases as is the case with so called "semistructured data".
