Reviews

"This book chronicles in satisfying detail the origins of US satellite reconnaissance by focusing on the pioneering CORONA program, under which some 800,000 satellite images were made between 1960 and 1972."--Scientific American

"Day (a research associate at the Space Policy Institute at George Washington Univ.), Logsdon (director of the Space Policy Institute), and Latell (editor of the CIA's journal Studies in Intelligence) have gathered together essays by many figures active in the program, producing a fascinating record of the evolution and impact of this crucial and revolutionary program."--Kirkus Reviews
