Cryptography books?

Can anyone recommend books that cover Cryptography as regards computers? I'd ideally like a book that covered everything, from encryption to decryption, all the different types of encrpytion, all the ways to deal with them.

Just checking if anyone knows the title of a book or two.

This is a VERY good book but requires a lot of dedication, it's math heavy and long. Clear your schedule for about two months and give this book a go:

I just bought The Science of Secrecy one today. So far it's an incredibly good read. Haven't gotten to far so I don't know how much of it will focus on the up-to-date cryptology. But I still recommend it if your looking for good information on crypt.
