Subject: Another book for military secrecy buffs: Deep Black

Deep Black is another book I've started reading, and it has been
recommended many times by space/satellite buffs as one of the best
books about military satellite surveillance technologies, etc.

    They are on the cutting edge of technology--the top-secret,
    billion-dollar instruments of super-power espionage.  They
    are spy satellites--the means by which the super-pwers keep
    tabs on each other in the deep black of space.  "Excellent . . .
    Highly recommended!"--Booklist. HC: Villard.

I suppose its a little dated now, having come out almost 10 years ago,
but I bet most of the hardware described is still in service.  Plus,
things like operational methodology and procedures, while refined over
time, are unlikely to have undergone major change.  I found a copy in
a used bookstore, so you shouldn't have to pay cover price for it if
you are patient.
