This introductory computer science text provides a breadth-first approach, first introducing the foundation of computer science and algorithms, then building on each central idea (hardware, system software and virtual machines, and languages) before finally discussing common applications, artificial intelligence, and social and legal issues. It is for CS0-the course students may take before CS1 for an overview and understanding of computer science without programming.
