From old favorites like The Difficult Road to Mars: A Brief History of Mars Exploration in the Soviet Union (http://history.nasa.gov/monograph15.pdf) and Wind Tunnels of NASA (http://history.nasa.gov/SP-440/cover.htm) to experimental work like Aerospace Food Technology (http://history.nasa.gov/SP-202/sp202.htm) and Life in the Universe: Proceedings of a conference held at NASA Ames Research Center Moffet Field, California, June 19-20, 1979 (http://history.nasa.gov/CP-2156/cp2156.htm), this is one of the best collections of space arcana you're likely to find.
Who could resist Exploring Space With a Camera? (http://history.nasa.gov/SP-168/sp168.htm) Or Rockets and People (http://history.nasa.gov/SP-4110/vol1-1.pdf), the autobiography of rocket designer Boris Chertok and a key history of the Soviet space program?
These books were placed online over the last decade, so some of the formatting leaves something to be desired. Many of the works have been broken up into tiny pieces, forcing one to click through page after page. But this is a singular information repository, a storehouse for our fascination with flight.
What these works also show is how central the space program made and found itself during the 20th century. NASA could convene PIllsbury and the chefs on nuclear submarines to talk about food. Computing and solar energy were both pushed along by NASA's interest. The Space Race was a proxy skirmish in the Cold War. And, of course, all sorts of ideas from the era leaked into the way NASA thought about things: freedom and America and gender and aesthetics and the future.
Oh, and don't miss a personal favorite, We Freeze to Please: A History of NASA's Icing Research Tunnel and the Quest for Safety (http://history.nasa.gov/sp4226.pdf). A page turner.

Societal Impact of Spaceflight:
The purpose of this volume is to examine the effects of spaceflight on society through scholarly research, making use especially of the tools of the historian and the broader social sciences and humanities. Has the Space Age indeed had a significant effect on society? If so, what are those influences? What do we mean by an "impact" on society? And what parts of society? Conversely, has society had any effect on spaceflight? What would be different had there been no Space Age?

Dick, Steven, editor, et. al. America In Space: NASA's First Fifty Years. New York : Abrams, 2007. As the world remembers the dawn of the Space Age in 2007 and the golden anniversary of NASA in 2008, the historic legacy of the agency is captured in a new photo book, America in Space , published by Harry N. Abrams, Inc., New York.
The book uses nearly 500 stunning photographs to tell the agency's story, from the drama of lift-off, to tension in mission control, to the humor and humanity portrayed in the faces of astronauts, scientists, engineers, and political leaders.
