Reviews

"The standard by which subsequent efforts will be judged. Those eager to build upon the important existing works in these areas are well advised to start with this excellent volume." Sociological Review "Written by one of the most influential surveillance scholars internationally, this book provides for the first time a truly interdisciplinary introduction to the study of surveillance. Surveillance Studies not only constitutes an important entry point to critically engage with surveillance in general, it also provides ... the perfect starting point to further develop the study of surveillance as a promising and crucially important field of research." Area "This book represents an overview of the field, but is nevertheless original and insightful in its own right. Above all, it is written in a clear and precise manner." Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute "A clearly written introduction to the subdiscipline that promises to serve as a useful criminology, sociology, or political science undergraduate textbook." Sociology "David Lyon's work demands our utmost respect and admiration for its scope, balance and clarity. If one were restricted to the reliance on only one text on surveillance I would suggest without hesitation to select this book." Ursula M. Franklin, University of Toronto "A clearly written, comprehensive and balanced introduction to the burgeoning field of surveillance studies. Definitive (or even pretty good) answers are elusive, but this book does a fine job of asking the right social scientific and moral questions." Gary T. Marx, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
