On a visit to NIST Boulder (then known as NBS) many years ago (1978), I was 
presented with a copy of NBS Monograph 155, "From Sundials to Atomic 
Clocks" by one of the authors.  I found it to be a fantastic read, it 
answers all of those questions about Time & Frequency that you were afraid 
to ask.

I stumbled on it again today in PDF form on the NIST website, it has 
undergone two revisions and this URL points to the most current (1999) edition.
