The No-Nonsense Guide to Global Surveillance
Written by Robin Tudge.
Published in Canada in association with Internationalist Publications Publications Ltd. by Between the Lines, 2011.
| Spying, once solely the domain of the KGB, CIA, CSIS, and MI5,
has become part of everyday life. It is now a multi-billion-dollar industry and
one of the major drivers of globalization. Governments routinely trawl our
emails, closed-circuit security cameras follow us in malls, office buildings,
and on street corners, while databases of our DNA and other personal details
become larger all the time. Our habits and behaviour are tracked via social
networks, cell phones and online transactions.
This No-Nonsense Guide provides a well-researched look into the history of surveillance and how the process is carried out today with the aid of technology and often, lack of express consent. As technology increasingly replaces community this guide shows how privacy and civil liberties are falling under the wheels of profit and power.
Robin Tudge is a freelance journalist and author who has lived and worked in Chicago, Pyongyang, Moscow, Hanoi, and Beijing. Robin Tudge is the author of The Bradt Guide to North Korea and the award-winning Rough Guide to Conspiracy Theories.
