Fundamental principles treated in detail with explanations 
Detailed development of array antennas to learn influence of antenna parameters on radiation as well as understanding arrays as used in practice
Thorough survey of antenna types: electrically small, resonant, broadband, and aperture
Emphasis on design data for the antennas treated
Explanations of how antennas are used in systems, such as wireless communications
Many new topics: Low-profile and personal communication antennas, mobile and base station antennas, RFID antennas, dielectric resonator antennas, smart antennas, near fields of antennas, and biohazards of RF exposure
Expanded coverage on: array antennas, microstrip antennas, system applications of antennas, and antenna measurements 
Antenna synthesis is covered 
Antenna measurement techniques are introduced 
This edition includes recent antenna innovations and applications and introduces a succinct treatment of the finite difference, time domain (FDTD) computational technique. 
The first textbook to treat physical theory of diffraction (PTD). 
Modern numerical methods for antenna computations (MoM, FDTD, and GTD) are treated in detail with many illustrations of applications to antennas 
Problems have been expanded in number and revised to make use of modern computational and simulation tools 
Recommendations and links to affordable or free modern simulation software are included
Appendix H provides a complete list of books on antennas organized by topical coverage

New to this edition

Modern material has been added to make the book more exciting to undergraduates and more relevant to practicing engineers. (Examples: Chapter 4 on systems, Chapter 11 on low-profile elements, and Chapter 12 on base station antennas). In addition, a new chapter (Chapter 1) is devoted to an overview of antennas and their application with emphasis on motivating the student. 
Some organizational changes have been made to improve understanding and college course flow. (Examples: The array chapter is moved to later in the book and system material combined and moved earlier). 
More details have been added to selected important topics. (Example: microstrip antennas, arrays). 
The topic of measurements has been expanded into a full chapter (Chapter 13).
