I'm looking for a book recommendation on the history of computer and internet security.

I had the opportunity to take a class called Network Security and I only went to the first day because there was no way I would be able to keep up with all my work. But on that day the professor went quickly over a timeline of network security history, talking briefly about honey pots, warez, NIDS, p2p, DoS attacks, porn, and so many more interesting topics that I wish I had time to absorb. I'm looking for a book that covers this history, hopefully accessible to an engineer-yet-not-a-CS-nerd like myself. Any recommendations?
