Summary
"This text takes a post-privacy approach to surveillance with a fresh look at the relations between technology and society. It examines the constant computer-based scrutiny of ordinary daily life for citizens and consumers as they participate in contemporary societies. It argues that to understand what is happening we have to go beyond Orwellian alarms and cries for more privacy to see how such surveillance also reinforces divisions by sorting people into social categories. The issues spill over narrow policy and legal boundaries to generate responses at several levels including local consumer groups, Internet activism, and international social movements."--BOOK JACKET
