Surveillance happens to all of us, everyday, as we walk beneath street cameras, swipe cards, surf the net. Agencies are using increasingly sophisticated computer systems - especially searchable databases - to keep tabs on us at home, work and play. Once the word surveillance was reserved for police activities and intelligence gathering, now it is an unavoidable feature of everyday life. Surveillance as Social Sorting proposes that surveillance is not simply a contemporary threat to individual freedom, but that, more insidiously, it is a powerful means of creating and reinforcing long-term social differences. As practiced today, it is actually a form of social sorting - a means of verifying identities but also of assessing risks and assigning worth. Questions of how categories are constructed therefore become significant ethical and political questions. Bringing together contributions from North America and Europe, Surveillance as Social Sorting offers an innovative approach to the interaction between societies and their technologies. It looks at a number of examples in depth and will be an appropriate source of reference for a wide variety of courses.

Surveillance After Snowden

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.

Prominent among the quests for post-9/11 security are developments in surveillance, especially at airports and on borders. Such activities are not new, but after 9/11 many surveillance trends have been intensified. The result? More and more persons and populations are counted as "suspicious." At the same time, less is disclosed about surveillance. Moreover, new technologies make surveillance even more opaque, such that not only suspicion but widespread secrecy also attends its growth. This book assesses post-9/11 surveillance trends, showing how existing surveillance activities have been extended, and that some qualitative changes in the security climate are taking place. Diverse databases containing personal information are being integrated. Biometric identifiers such as iris scans are becoming more popular. Consumer data are merged with those obtained for policing and intelligence, to create ever-widening webs of surveillance. While extraordinary legal measures and high-tech systems are being adopted, promises made on their behalf--that terrorism can be prevented--are hard to justify. This book demonstrates that the social consequen
