Date: Tue, 29 Apr 1997 17:24:07 -0800 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. >From www.amazon.com: Deep Black by William E. Burrows Reissue Edition Mass Market Paperback Published by Berkley Pub Group Publication date: December 1,1988 Dimensions (in inches): 6.90 x 4.16 x .98 ISBN: 0425108791 Synopsis: 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. -- ``Between stimulus and response is the will to choose.'' -- Steven Covey =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 3D Paint: The Power to Create in 3D; Rich Thomson email me for more info email@example.com
