Windows into the soul
Surveillance and society in an age of high technology
☙ Posté le 01-02-2016
We live in an age saturated with surveillance. Our personal and public lives are increasingly on display for governments, merchants, employers, hackers — and the merely curious — to see. In Windows into the Soul, Gary T. Marx, a central figure in the rapidly expanding field of surveillance studies, argues that surveillance itself is neither good nor bad, but that context and comportment make it so. In this landmark book, Marx sums up a lifetime of work on issues of surveillance and social control by disentangling and parsing the empirical richness of watching and being watched.
