Overview

From computer networks to grocery store checkout scanners, it is easier and easier for governments, employers, advertisers, and individuals to gather detailed and sophisticated information about each of us.

Timely and provocative, this collection will be of vital interest to anyone concerned with resistance to social control and incursions into privacy.
