In 2013, Edward Snowden revealed that the NSA and its partners had
been engaging in warrantless mass surveillance, using the internet
and cellphone data, and driven by fear of terrorism under the sign
of 'security'. In this compelling account, surveillance expert
David Lyon guides the reader through Snowden's ongoing disclosures:
the technological shifts involved, the steady rise of invisible
monitoring of innocent citizens, the collusion of government
agencies and for-profit companies and the implications for how we
conceive of privacy in a democratic society infused by the lure of
big data. Lyon discusses the distinct global reactions to Snowden
and shows why some basic issues must be faced: how we frame
surveillance, and the place of the human in a digital world.
Surveillance after Snowden is crucial reading for anyone interested
in politics, technology and society.
