Surveillance is a central organizing practice. Gathering
personal data and processing them in searchable databases drives
administrative efficiency but also raises questions about security,
governance, civil liberties and privacy. Surveillance is both
globalized in cooperative schemes, such as sharing biometric data,
and localized in the daily minutiae of social life. This innovative
Handbook explores the empirical, theoretical and ethical issues
around surveillance and its use in daily life.
With a collection of over forty essays from the leading names in
surveillance studies, the Handbook takes a truly multi-disciplinary
approach to critically question issues of:
- surveillance and population control
- policing, intelligence and war
- production and consumption
- new media
- regulation and resistance.
The Routledge Handbook of Surveillance Studies is an
international, accessible, definitive and comprehensive overview of
the rapidly growing multi-disciplinary field of surveillance
studies. The Handbook's direct, authoritative style will appeal to
a wide range of scholars and students in the social sciences, arts
