Editorial Reviews


"Monahan and contributors have their collective finger on the pulse of the new surveillance and security zeitgeist." --William G. Staples, Professor of Sociology, University of Kansas

"This volume is such an important and timely set of conversations that I think it should be left out on coffee tables and in doctor's offices or wherever people just happen to pick up things to read." --Mary C. Ingram-Waters (SKAT)
