About the Author

Kenneth W. Royce (founder of Free State Wyoming), is a shooting instructor, speaker, and the author of 12 Boston T. Party books on guns, history, law, politics, privacy, and government. His Boston's Gun Bible is a classic within the shooting community, and his novel Molon Labe! has inspired a recent relocation wave to Wyoming.

One Nation, Under Surveillance is the final title from Boston T. Party, as he begins work on other books (under Kenneth W. Royce), projects, and travel.

Look for the next book by Royce, who breaks out in a new direction with this self-help book for the remedial man:
Modules For Manhood: What Every Male Under 40 Must Know

A much needed update of an older privacy book, this one covers all the bases.

In this most up-to-date and comprehensive book on the subject the author accomplishes three feats for those of us interested in state-of-the-art privacy: 1.

And what is the goal in increasing personal privacy if not to INCREASE SERENITY?!!

I wanted this since it was pre-anounced, and got it as soon as it came out. It's an excellent guide for staying "off the grid" while still living "in the grid."

"One Nation, Under Surveillance" explains how you don't have to live on the woods to minimize the amount of government/corporate/marketing/nosy neighbor intrusion, and the book lays out how. And does so in a "friend sitting next to you explaining things" voice.

In typical Boston T. Party style, the book covers everything promised in the book title AND THEN SOME. The "then some" in this case is the chapter on spotting and blocking sociopaths (who hide in society masquerading as "nice, normal folks".)

Some would say "What the heck does that have to do with avoiding having your bank information stolen and keeping your computer information and phone calls private?" The answer is, well, EVERYTHING. First, those people are the most likely to steal your info/money/checks/etc. But second of all, they are the most likely to steal your SERENITY. And what is the goal in increasing personal privacy if not to INCREASE SERENITY?!!

Another great thing about this book is that, while it does explain the ever-increasing intrusions on privacy in modern society, and extensive details on how to avoid them, it is not a "paranoid" book. It is realistic. It's less "Dale Gribble" and more just "How to quietly have your life together."

I really like "One Nation, Under Surveillance", find it VERY useful, and I'm giving a copy to a close friend.

...this one delivers. A much needed update of an older privacy book, this one covers all the bases. I found myself reading it through once for the general drift and then again slowly to absorb the detail.

The Linux chapter alone is worth the price of admission but by far the most surprising chapter deals with sociopathic behavior. Reading and coming to grips with what the author is saying about this sick cross section of so called humanity will shine a light on the previously obscured.

Chock full of useful information it belongs in the hands of all privacy lovers and, most especially, in the hands of those who think privacy isn't important.

Format: Paperback
"One Nation Under Surveillance: Privacy From The Watchful Eye" by Boston T. Party is an interesting and eye opening book full of strategies and techniques to keep you, your belongings, and your activities private. It's obvious that the author is sick and tired of Big Brother's ever increasing invasion into every aspect of our lives. You don't have to agree with him on everything, nor do you have to take all the measures outlined in this text, to gain some valuable information regarding privacy and to have your eyes opened to things you probably didn't know were going on.

I'm not personally looking to drop off the grid right now, nor do I plan to implement a lot of the privacy strategies outlined in this book. However, I am still very glad I read it. It opened my eyes to things, and there are things in the book that I'll be using personally.

Right at the beginning, the author discusses why a person might want more privacy, and his number one reason is oppressive government, high taxes, and war. Like I said, the author is not too fond of the government, but then who is these days? Learning about how information is collected on us, and by whom, is a good wake up call. There's some Interesting and scary stuff here. He then does a good job of describing privacy vs. paranoia, though some may think the line is not quite where the author draws it.

There are chapters on a variety of topics ranging from interesting, to a bit complex, to things that were beyond my personal lifestyle goals, but interesting to read nonetheless. I found the chapter on people, and who you trust to be very interesting, and did not expect to find a segment on sociopaths when I first got the book. Chapters on I.D.

I couldn't put this book down. Boston T. Party does an excellent job like always. The thing I love about all his books is he provides levels...

What I mean by that is yes, you could take this as a paranoid craziness tinfoil hat mania. Perhaps, if you take every suggestion, tactic, strategy and tip to it's most extreme level, you might be a total recluse. But even Boston doesn't suggest that. Some of the chapters you'll want to take to the extreme, some you'll glance over, and others you'll find some middle ground. Use what fits into your life and what you're willing to do, as much or as little as you want. The end result will certainly be a more private, more aware and safer you, no matter how far you take things.

In case you haven't gotten it so far, I highly recommend this, and all, of Boston's books.

Boston says this may be his last book under that pen name. I am going to miss him, but this book is a nice way for him to put that persona to bed. This book is a greatly expanded and updated version of his original 'Bulletproof Privacy' book I reviewed way back when.

The book is worth double its price just for the expanded and updated sections entitled 'Telecommunications/Passphrases/Computer Data and Internet Privacy. (That's really all your getting - much of Bulletproof Privacy is repeated in this book ) There is also a chapter on the Linux system. I have gotten too old and too busy to sit down and learn about new technology from conventional sources and I really have come to despise new technologies but I must still be somewhat familiar with them.

This is where Boston really really shines for someone like me. He distills internet protocol, encryption, and the current state and availability of governmnet and civilian technology into several chapters so that you will have good familiarity with the spectrum of information and equipment in little time.

You will learn "how secure is 'secure' - when implemented security is 'enough' - How many characters should your passphrase be? - Are there surveillance backdoors into the Windows operation system? - Can data be mined off computer hard disks that have been 'wiped'? What do government agencies do with old computer hard-drives - (they don't wipe 'em) - How is data recorded on hard drives? - What about the new electronic surveillance warrants and keystroke monitoring software? You mean they can put that into your mainframe box itself AS hardware??
